Hockey Ashes : Australia vs England – Preview

Australia (FIH  World Rank : 1 )  vs  England (FIH  World Rank : 7) :Important Fantasy Observations which can influence the Game.

How these 2 teams lost in semifinals will be an important attribute but we can expect few changes from both teams as they are no longer in race for World Cup. 


How Australia lost semifinals? 

  • With scores locked 2-2 at regular time, the shootout went to sudden death after both teams only converted three of their opening five shots eventually loosing heartbreaking semi-final to the Netherlands 4-3 in a penalty shootout.
  • Blaak was named man-of-the-match, saving 10 shots on his goal,  so they lost because of a world class goal keeeper, defence is best form of attack isn’t it 

How England lost? 

  • England lost a third consecutive men’s Hockey World Cup semi-final as they were thrashed 6-0 by Belgium in India
  • Belgium dominated from start to finish 

Prediction: Australia too good to have 2 bad days on a trot.. Bronze for Aussies
