Bhubaneswar, 4 December 2014: With the Hero Men’s Champions Trophy ready to start off in a couple of days, the teams participating in the tournament are training with every bit of their efforts to be good and ready to take on their opponents.
Aiming for a glorious triumph in the championship, England and the Netherlands practiced their game according to their strategies and approaches today, at the Kalinga Stadium, Bhubaneswar.
Appearing pretty pleased with the regular groundwork, The Netherlands player Mink Van Der Weerden said, “We have been here for seven days now and the team is well acquainted with the pitch and the weather at this time. Everybody in the team is fit and in a good frame of mind and we are all set for Saturday when we play opposite Argentina in the first match.”
After the practice match today, England Captain Barry Middleton said, “We have been training for three days now, having played two practice sessions and one warm-up match against The Netherlands. Today we practiced on our defence area and tried out a few variations along with team combinations. The team is young in terms of dynamics and we have been playing well. The other teams are equally good and I think the world champions Australia are going to be the toughest of all.”
