ARG vs BEL Dream11 Hockey | Argentina vs Belgium FIH Pro League Preview

Cordoba, 27th January 2018 at 02:45 AM IST

Argentina take on World Champions Belgium in their FIH Pro League opener at Estadio Hockey stadium in Cordoba. Argentina reached the quarterfinal stage of the recently concluded Men’s Hockey World Cup held in India.

Belgium are full of confidence after the recent World Cup triumph. They have also knocked Australia and Argentina down the FIH Hero World Rankings to reach the top of Men’s Hockey Team Rankings. Can they carry their World Cup form into the tournament?

England, Spain, Australia, Germany, Great Britain, Netherlands and New Zealand are the other participating countries in the FIH Pro League. Each nation plays a total of 16 matches before for a place in the ‘Grand Final’ which is scheduled in late June.
