Hockey is certainly a physical sport but England and Canada gave it a whole another meaning in their Men's Pool B match. It was Canada's Balraj Panesar who was seen getting involved with England's Chris Griffiths in a row.

While the match ended with England's dominance which saw them defeat Canada 11-2, the fixture will unfortunately be remembered for the tussle between Panesar and Griffiths. While the former received marching orders, the latter saw a yellow card.

Watch the intense moment here:

Had England won the match by 15 goals, India would have dropped down to 2nd place in the points table and would have faced Australia in the semis.
