The Dutch men’s national team who will compete at the upcoming Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 was announced earlier today.

Head coach Max Caldas said: “We are professional athletes and will play the World Cup to win the title.

But we do realize that we’re not the only team with that ambition. It’s a tough competition, all teams are very strong.

Therefore, at the World Cup we want to perform better than we have ever done before, in skills, tactics as well as physically and in mental strength.

If we can do that, we will be able to compete for the title. I’m convinced about that.”

The Netherlands, runners-up of the last edition of the Hockey World Cup played at home, sit in Pool D with Germany, Malaysia and Pakistan.
