India vs Belgium Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | India vs Belgium
The hosts will next face Belgium in a crucial contest after winning their opening game handsomely against South Africa. Belgium too were victorious in their opening game against Canada by 2-1.
Belgium’s campaign took a right step forward as they outclassed Canada by 2-1. Felix Denayer was the first one to inflict pain on the Canadian defence in the 3rd minute itself. The next goal was scored by the captain himself as he opened his account in the 22nd minute of the game.
The Red Lions rely heavily on their forward and one of the most experienced player Thomas Briels. Having already opened his account in the first game, Belgium would want their premier player to be at his very best against a tough side.
The home side is also one of the youngest sides of this World Cup with the heftiest name in the ranks being the Goal Keeper PR Sreejesh. They have made an impressive start to their campaign after thwarting South Africa 5-0 and will look to carry forward their good run of form.
Mandeep Singh, Akashdeep Singh, Lalit Upadhyay and Simranjeet Singh were the scorers in the last game with Simranjeet Singh being the top scorer with 2 goals to his name.
