Match 20: 7th December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
Ireland and England faceoff in a crucial Pool B Men’s Hockey World Cup tie for a playoff spot at Kalinga Stadium on Friday.
Ireland started their WC campaign with a 2-1 win but demonstrated grit in the opening encounter. They would be slightly dissapointed with the result of their second fixture, against China that ended in a draw. They are currently sitting at the third place on the points tally and holding onto it will ensure them a playoff spot.
England, reeling at the bottom of the table, have conceded far too many goals to become the Pool B laggards. They must put their all in the all-important game as only a favourable result can give them another life or it will be curtains.
