HWL 2015: bronze Match: India Vs Netheralands: Experience Vs Experimental side

The Netherlands’s may not have performed to the image of being world’s number two team here in Raipur, but it is one team that experiments fully here.

undefined Coach Max Caldus, who succeeded Paul van Ass, has brought at least five players who are novices. His idea is to provide new comers a chance before finalizing his Olympic squad. He has also successful in persuading Netherlands players from not taking part in the Hockey India League.

Bjorn Brinkman, Joep de Mol are making debut here while Roel Bovendeert has just had a single international cap before coming to Raipur.

Almost ten players have 20 or less caps.

Unlike Belgium, Argentina and India, the team has just four players who had one hundred or more caps. It all means that the Dutch are undefined the ones who brought inexperienced and new combination here, still they reached the semis, losing to Australia in the semis just by a goal margin. They too overcame Argentina in the quarters. They will now be facing India today in the medal match.

India is a full pledged team; experienced. It has double the collective caps than doay’s rival. Except Jaap Stockmann, who in his 30s is 120 caps veteran, the team can be beaten.

Netherlands has the benefit of taking a day break, the luxury that India did not have. India will have to show its fitness level also.
