Pakistan vs Netherlands Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | Pakistan vs Netherlands
The final encounter of Pool D will witness the Netherlands squaring-off against Pakistan in what is expected to be quite an interesting battle going by the race to the cross-over stages.
They are still eyeing for their first win of the tournament, having locked horns with Malaysia and pool-toppers in their opening two games, they are still eluded for a win.
Germany beat them 0-1 and sustained a consolidating position in Pool D. Following that game, Pakistan then locked horns with Malaysia but could not finish the encounter according to their will as the match ended up in a 1-1 draw.
They are almost assured of the third position in Pool D, but a win here will boost their campaign for the cross-over games starting from 10th December.
After a blazing start to their Hockey World Cup 2018 campaign against Malaysia, the Orange hockey were clipped down mercilessly by the Germans by 4-1. It was a terrific performance from the German side to tame a heavy force of Netherlands who came into the game on the back of a tantalizing 7-0 win over Malaysia.
They need to regroup after the last match debacle and come up with a much-improved show against Pakistan who have been defiant in their defence in the last two games.
