At the EuroHockey Championships in August England and Ireland came head to head in a thrilling encounter with England putting in a fine display to win 4-1. The last time England’s players would have played India was during the Rio 2016 Olympic games playing as Great Britain.

England Head Coach Danny Kerry said: “The publishing of the draw for the World Cup makes the reality of a home World Cup seem more real as next July fast approaches. Our opening game will be against a resurgent India side that recently won the Asia Cup under a new coach, followed by talented teams in USA and Ireland.

"As ever at this level each game will be decided by the moments and margins and the tournament will be exciting for it. We will be incredibly well prepared for the off at 2pm on July 21st, and look forward to having the home support with us every step of the way.”
