Match 12: 3rd December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
New Zealand and Argentina lock horns for the all-important top-spot of Pool A on Monday.
Black Sticks registered an impressive 2-1 win over France in their first match of the tournament. With winning momentum by their side, they would want to make a push for two in two and secure the top spot in the points tally.

Argentina, on the other hand, were involved in a thriller (4-3) in their tournament opener. With top spot on the table at stake, they would want to plug the leaks and hope for a comprehensive performance. The Argentines would once again be banking on the star strikers – Mazzilli and Peillat – to make the difference.
