Bhubaneswar: With only a few hours left for the crucial India-Netherlands quarterfinal tie in the Hockey Men’s World Cup, former Indian captain Sadar Singh today advised the men in blue to stick to the game plan. In an exclusive interview to OTV, Singh stated that both India and the Netherlands are playing good Hockey and have a lot of match-winning players.

“Usually the Netherlands team focuses on men-to-men marking and are good at rotation. India just needs to stick to the plan and strategy as chalked out by the coach and they also need to be quick in decision making,” said Singh.
