The second knockout of the day will feature China in a gruelling encounter against a worthy opponent in France. Both China and France have played well to reach this juncture and we will have to wait and see which team will have the last laugh.

France, on the other hand, are on a dream run in their maiden appearance of the Hockey World Cup. They are coming into this game with high on confidence after defeating the Pool favourites and reigning Olympic champions Argentina by a havoc margin of 5-3.
