Belgium vs South Africa Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | Belgium vs South Africa
Saturday will witness the clash of Pool C teams which will be the final clash of this World Cup for Pool C which is currently led by the home side India.
The first game of the evening will be played between Belgium and South Africa who are placed at the second and bottom spot respectively in Pool C.
After drawing level against India in their second game, Belgium will be out for one last time in Pool encounters. They were good in the game against India and will look to continue their form to assure a finish among the top two teams.
They have a bright chance to displace India from the top spot as South Africa have a dismal show as they haven’t won a single game and this would be their golden chance to dent them even more.
A miracle sort of performance which was put up last night by the debutants France against Argentina would be needed for South Africa to get through the next round.
They have performed really poorly so far and their opening loss to India by 0-5 has dented their chances even more. A miraculous performance is what they need to get through to places.
