Match 9: 2nd December 2018 at 5:00 PM IST
Canada and South Africa would be desperate to get a favourable result in their favour after suffering defeats in their opening fixtures.
In their opening fixture, Canada conceded an early goal against Belgium but came back stronger to contain a top-side. However, it was not enough in the end as they could not outscore the opponent. Canada would be looking for a stronger performance here to stay in contention.
South Africa, on the other hand, come into the fixture after a horror show against India in their opening match. They were dismantled and kept conceding goals at regular intervals. They must forget Wednesday’s outing and start afresh to give themselves a chance.
