"We are going to try and create as many chances at goal as possible. We will not play for draws as that might end up bad," Walsh said after the Pool A match.
     
"We lost two more goals of advantage and that might hurt us later,” he said.
     
On Tuesday’s match, Walsh said, "There were no decisive turning points in the match. They were not dominant and did not create more goal chances than us. Of course in the end all that matters are the numbers."
     
India put up a valiant fight before going down against in their third group match of the men's Hockey competition.
     
Living up to their reputation, Australia built on a two-goal burst in the space of two minutes and were set to go into the breather with a 3-0 cushion before India pulled one back right at the end of the first half.
     
"It's so important to the team to play at this level. It's huge for them to have the chance to grow."
     
India managed to re-group themselves and put up a stronger defence in the second half, where they conceded one and scored one at the National Hockey Centre here.
     
Chris Ciriello (14th minute, 49th), Simon Orchard (16th) and Jacob Whetton (26th) were the goal scorers for Australia while Rupinder Singh (34th) and Ramandeep Singh (48th) sounded the board for India.

On the upcoming match against South Africa, Indian forward Ramandeep Singh said, "This is a team effort. The next game is very important and that's why we will win against South Africa."
     
Another player Manpreet Singh, who earned his 100th cap on Tuesday, said, "It was a good experience but I want to play and learn a lot more."
     
On India's performance, he said, "We played very well but missed lots of chances and you cannot do that against Australia."
     
And about getting the score back to 3-2, he said, "Australia are the number one team in the world so they are always going to be tough to beat."
         
Asked about the crucial South Africa game, he said, "South Africa should be a good match. I only gave 80 per cent but I want to be giving 100 per cent in the next match."
