India vs. South Africa Hockey World Cup 2023 Match Preview, LIVE Streaming Details: When and Where to Watch FIH Men’s Hockey World Cup India Live Broadcast | Other sports news
Team India led by Harmanpreet Singh meets South Africa in their final match of the 2023 FIH Men’s Ice Hockey World Championship on Saturday 28 January evening at Rourkela Stadium. The goal for both sides will be to finish the tournament in 9th or 10th place. This is a classification game for places 9-12. India beat Japan 8-0 in their 9-16 placement game over two days. That performance came a little too late for India, who needed to beat Wales by that margin in their last game in Pool B to qualify for the quarter-finals. However, India only managed a 4-2 victory. They were then forced to play the crossover game against New Zealand but even there they lost despite leading for most of the game. The defeat came on penalties.
India’s best hockey came in the classification game against Japan, and that too in the last 30 minutes. The game was 0-0 at half-time and only in the third and fourth quarters did India score 8 goals.

Indian men’s ice hockey team head coach Graham Reid believes they missed the trick by not adding a mental toughness and conditioning coach to the team for the World Cup. Reid took the blame, saying he wrongly assumed his team wouldn’t need one at the World Cup. He said he felt the support staff could manage things themselves and that was a mistake. Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey has now promised the team that they will soon have a mental toughness and conditioning coach.
However, India must finish as high as possible in the tournament with a win over South Africa.
India finishes in style as they beat Japan. Here are some moments from the game.
