In India, we always go behind cricket and its players. Hardly do we pay our attention to other sports irrespective of the fact that how well do they play and make our nation proud. At the ongoing Asian Games in Indonesia, Indian Men's hockey team has reached semi-finals after making records. The teams scored a total of 76 goals in just 5 matches including the historic match against Hong Kong in which India won with 26-0.
India is currently eyeing on Gold as there is a face-off against Malaysia in semi-finals today.
Slowly and gradually, people have started giving attention to other sports like Hockey and football too. The Men's Hockey World Cup is happening soon in India. It is scheduled to be held from 28 November to 16 December 2018, at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, India. And now, when the World Cup is just 3 months away, it is hard for the fans to keep calm. The tweet is flooded with the tweets along with the hashtag #HeartBeats4Hockey.
Here's how people are reacting:
A total of 16 countries would be competing to grab the World Cup. Pool A comprises of Argentina, New Zealand, Spain and France. Pool B has Australia, Ireland, England, and China.
