Junior Men's Hockey World Cup: India to play two warm-up games

The Manpreet Singh-led Indian junior men’s hockey team will play two warm-up games to fine-tune their preparations for the 10th Junior World Cup beginning at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium from December 6.

The Blueshirts will play their first practice game against England on November 30. The hosts will play their second and final warm-up match against Belgium on
December 4.

India will kickstart their 10th Junior World Cup campaign against formidable Netherlands on December 6 in a Pool C game – the opening day of the big-ticket event.

They play their second match against Canada on December on 7 and their final league tie against Korea on December 10.

It may be worth recalling that India have won the Junior World Cup only once in the 2011 edition in Hobart, Australia, where they thumped Argentina 6-1 in the title clash.
