India vs Canada Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | India vs Canada
In the final match of Pool C, home favourites India will square off against Canada to ascertain their table-top spot. Canada, on the other hand, will look for a fascinating performance to get themselves a chance for the next round.
A perfect win in the opening encounter against South Africa and then a hard-fought draw against Belgium has made their way relatively easily for the next round.
Skipper Manpreet Singh is all praised for his young side and happy with the way they performed in the last game after being under pressure for the first two-quarters of the match.
They have a fair chance to go into the next round without losing a single game after they beat Canada tomorrow.
Canada are placed on the third position as of now. They haven’t won a single game till now as their opening game was a loss against Belgium by 2-1 and the next game against South Africa ended up in a draw 1-1.
Their chances against india looks bleak, especially going by the current form of the home side. In their previous martch, Nqobile Ntuli scored a goal in the 43rd minute and only two minutes later Canada equalized courtesy Scott Tupper’s penalty stroke.
