Canada vs Netherlands Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | Canada vs Netherlands
After finishing second in Pool D, Netherlands will go in as the favourites in the second knockout game of the day against Canada who finished third in Pool C.
They have finished third in Pool C without any win under their belt. After playing three games in the competition, they lost twice but drawn once against South Africa which outlasted them on terms of decimal points.
It will be a daunting task for sure to stop the Netherlands attack in this game, it just a matter of time to see whether they prevail or not.
The Netherlands were equally best in their Pool alongside the Pool toppers Germany. From the three games, they managed 2 wins against Malaysia and Pakistan which was enough to place them at the second spot.
Both their wins were astonishingly one-sided which saw them beating Malaysia in the tournament 7-0 and Pakistan 5-1.
