NAM-W vs BLR-W
Belarus secured a place for themselves in the FIH Series Finals after outshining in Wattgnies, France in FIH Series Open 2018. Namibia, on the other hand, are the lowest ranked team of Pool A (WR:42). The side qualified for this event after winning FIH Series Open in Bulawayo and returning off FIH Indoor World Cup 2018. All eyes will be on Magreth Mengo and Kiana-Che Cormack as they enter this event as underdogs.
Belarus, on the other hand, will rely heavily upon Elena Sazhina and Yuliya Mikheichyk. However, both the teams have not met since 2013, hence, both the teams have all their cards intact for this header. Moreover, both the teams will be eager to seal a spot in the Olympics Qualifiers slated for later this year.
The match will be played in Estadio Betero, Valencia on 19th June
