Back to Back losses against Argentina and Germany have shattered the morale of the Indian Hockey Team who is playing in the Champions Trophy, 2014, and when they enter the ground for the match against Netherlands, they expect nothing less than a scintillating win.
The match against Netherlands will not be easy for the hosts, as the team from Europe is the Silver Medalist in World Cup Hockey.
India lost their first match against Germany in a very narrow margin. Indian Goal Keeper Sreejesh showed some impeccable performance in that match, and the hosts lost the battle in a margin of 1-0.
But in the second match, Argentina literally tore down India into shreds. The Latin American team defeated India in a score of 4-2, and this pulled India to a very dangerous position in the tournament. Follow the Ind vs Holland live scores here.
“The mistakes which we did yesterday will be rectified today. And we have planned to put up a very good show, our best show which we can put up tomorrow. We are also prepared mentally for the quarter final, and we hope we will get it without much hassles.
“We are all prepared for that and no matter who is our opponent”, said India’s most experienced drag-flicker VR Raghunath to the reporters.
