Germany vs Belgium, 3rd Quarterfinal, Hockey World Cup 2018
Match 31: 13th December 2018 at 5:00 PM IST
Olympic bronze medallist Germany take on Belgium in the third Men’s Hockey World Cup 2018 quarter-final at Kalinga Stadium on Thursday.
Germany amassed three wins in as many outings in their pool fixtures and come into this after a 5-3 win over Malaysia. They have had a good layoff coming into the last 8, as eight sides contested crossover playoffs for the quarter-final berths in the last two days.
Belgium, on the other hand, took down four times champions Pakistan 5-0 in their crossover playoff to get to the last eight. Olympic silver medallists and World no. 3 Belgium would look to bring the winning momentum into the fixture to stop the juggernaut of in-form counterparts.
