Match 22: 8th December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
The hosts India would be looking to consolidate their position at the head of the Pool C table when they take on Canda in their third and final league fixture of Men’s Hockey World Cup 2018 at Kalinga Stadium.
India opened their account with an emphatic win over South Africa but could not get better of Belgium in their second fixture of the competition which ended in 2-2 draw. With top-spot at stake, as Belgium are right behind them, India cannot get complacent.
Canda, on the other hand, have a battle of their own to survive in the event. They are sitting at the third spot in the Pool C and holding onto the position will get them to the playoffs.
