India vs Netherlands, 4rd Quarterfinal, Hockey World Cup 2018
Match 32: 13th December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
The stage is set for the high-octane Men’s Hockey World Cup quarterfinal between India and Netherlands on Thursday.
India secured the top spot in Pool C to get a direct entry for the quarterfinal. The hosts dominated the games involving South Africa and Canada but were held 2-2 against Belgium. With thrilling wins in the two games in the group stage, India will come out bursting with confidence.
Netherlands, on the other hand, have had a decent run in the tournament thus far. However, they had to play an extra tie (crossover playoff) to book the quarterfinal berth. In the crossover playoff, the Dutch side registered a comfortable 4-0 win over Canada and would be looking for a similar performance in the all-important last 8 clash. They will also get inspiration from the fact that they have never lost to India in a World Cup game.
