Hockey World Cup 2023: Hockey World Cup will be organized in India next year. This World Cup will be played in Bhubaneswar, India. The Indian hockey team has performed brilliantly in the last few years. From the Olympics to the Commonwealth Games, India continued its brilliant game. This World Cup is also very special for India because this World Cup is being played at home. In such a situation, no team will make the mistake of taking India lightly. Former Australian hockey player Glenn Turner has said a big thing about this.
Glenn Turner feels Australia, defending champions Belgium and the Netherlands are strong contenders to win the men’s hockey World Cup in India but cautioned against taking Tokyo Olympic bronze medalist India lightly at home. Australia, Belgium, Netherlands, hosts India, Argentina, Germany, New Zealand, England, France, Korea, Malaysia, Spain, South Africa, Japan, Chile and Wales are the 16 teams competing in the tournament which is jointly hosted in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela. From 13 to 29 January.
what did turner say
Turner, a two-time Olympian, said, “I think Australia has a big chance. He recently won a gold medal in the Commonwealth Games. They are a class team. I know how they train and they train to win. Their core and fundamentals are very good and I think that is what sets them apart. Turner, who was a member of the Australian team that won two consecutive World Cups in 2010 and 2014, said, “I think Belgium are also contenders because they are in very good form. It’s hard to beat them at the moment. And I think the Netherlands should also be in the top and if they play to the best of their ability, it will be really cool.” Turner said, “India will play at home. I would love to see him perform well.”
