In the second Pool D match of the 2018 FIH Men's Hockey World Cup, four-time champions Pakistan will take on two-time winners Germany. It will be a blockbuster clash between two of the most successful teams.
The match will be a replay of the 2014 Champions Trophy final, which the Europeans won by two goals to nil. Clubbed in the Group of Death, along with former champions The Netherlands and Malaysia, Pakistan would look to shrug off years of disappointment and a chaotic build up when they take on higher-ranked Germany.
