The Hague, Netherlands: A dismal ninth-place finish in the World Cup notwithstanding, Indian coach Terry Walsh chose to see the brighter side and said that the team is trying to mix the Asian and European styles of hockey that can be troublesome for the rivals.

"We've been mixing a bit of the Asian and European styles, but we are far from perfect. We have some way to go and we're working on it," said Walsh.

"It's a long-drawn process, but I am confident the signs of change will soon become evident," said Walsh, who went on to compliment captain Sardar Singh and the team members for trying to adapt the European style into their game.
