The Hockeyroos will be out to continue their winning run at Tokyo 2020 when they come up against India in a must win Quarter Final at 1pm AEST tomorrow (Monday 2 August) at Oi Stadium.
The Hockeyroos’ five straight wins in the pool matches may have surprised Head Coach Katrina Powell but what has impressed her most is the team’s determination to build on their performance.
Powell, who has combined with fellow Sydney Olympic gold medallist Katie Allen to guide the team in Tokyo, believes this will ensure their continued success in the knockout rounds.
“This group is challenging themselves to be better, to build and improve – that’s what impresses me,” Powell said.
“We take into the quarter finals the recognition of what has been working well for us and what has got us to this point.
