New Zealand’s Black Sticks take on Belgium in their second FIH Pro League tie at North Harbour in Auckland. The hosts have added Dominic Newman to the side as they eye a more attacking approach. Black Sticks came from behind (after trailing 3-0) to score three out but eventually lost the game 4-3. The inspired comeback will give them plenty of confidence to take on World Champions, Belgium.
Belgium, on the other hand, have played two games in the competition. They could not take the World Cup-winning momentum into the opening game which they lost to Spain. Belgium bounced back in the second fixture against Argentina.
