Pakistan vs Belgium Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 | Pakistan vs Belgium
After yet another humiliating loss, Pakistan’s hopes to qualify in the quarterfinals is looking completely bleak. They next face an in-form unit in Belgium who are coming after romping South Africa in their last Pool game.
Their campaign for this World Cup is looking shattered as they have not got a single win in the three games they have featured.
They finished third after losing in a humiliating manner against the Netherlands by 5-1, going by their current form Belgium are the favourites especially when Pakistan skipper Mohammad Rizwan is out of the remainder of the tournament.
Belgium is on a roll after winning two of their 3 Pool games and finishing second in Pool C just behind India. They are undefeated thus far and will look to contemplate on their winning momentum against an under-pressured Pakistan.
Their final Pool game was against South Africa who were shown the exit door courtesy Belgium’s juggernaut performance with a scoreline of 1-5.
