In the second match of the day in Women’s Olympic Qualifiers, Belgium Women will be colliding against China Women at the Wuijn Hockey Stadium in Changzhou.
China would be hosting this match as they are ranked higher than Belgium women. China are ranked 10th in the World, whereas, Belgium holds the 12th rank.
These two teams have a very different style of play. China Women have not had a great show in the 2018 World Cup with their early exit from the tournament. They would be looking to address their flaws from the World Cup and emerge as a better unit.
Meanwhile, Belgium are one of the newcomers when it comes to top-ranked sides. They finished fifth in the FIH Pro League where they defeated the likes of Australia and Great Britain. They would be carrying great confidence into this game which will help them qualify for Tokyo Olympics 2019.
The match will be played at the Wujin Hockey Stadium in Changzhou 25th October
Time –01:30 PM IST
