HIGHLIGHTS | India v New Zealand, crossover match Men’s FIH Hockey World Cup 2023: India were knocked out of the World Cup by New Zealand on penalties.


India’s men’s hockey team are preparing for a tough match against New Zealand in the Hockey World Cup 2023 crossover match. 8 point difference. India needed a big win over Wales after England beat Spain at the top of the pool, and needed a big win from India to beat them at the top. In case you didn’t know, the top team in the pool will advance to the quarter-finals, while the 2nd place and his 3rd place team will have a crossover match. India must beat New Zealand to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament.

India have already fallen back ahead of the match. The reason is that India’s top midfielder, Hardik Singh, has been ruled out of his Cup of Hockey Worlds due to a hamstring injury. Some reports say Mandeep Singh also has knee problems and is therefore uncertain of availability. We’ll know what the 11 to play is once the game starts, but coach Graham Reed is certainly under pressure to provide a team that lacks key players and form.

The hosts looked lethargic despite their 4-2 victory over Wales. They needed to dominate the game for his 60 minutes but it didn’t happen and against New Zealand India will have to go back to hockey at its best.
