BEL-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Hockey | New Zealand vs Belgium Women’s FIH Pro League Preview

Auckland, 1st February at 09:30 AM IST

New Zealand Women and Belgium Women lock horns in a forthcoming Women’s FIH Pro League fixture at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland on Friday. When the two sides met at the 2018 Hockey World Cup, New Zealand secured a 4-2 win with the help of a brace from Olivia Merry. However, New Zealand side can’t get complacent since Belgium have grown since the encounter and have more belief in the unit.

Meanwhile, Belgium Women did not start the competition in the manner they would have liked. However, they have been work-in-progress since the Hockey World Cup and with seasoned campaigners like striker Jill Boon in the ranks, Belgium can’t be written off.
