After earning a place in the knockouts with a hard-fought draw against world No.7 USA on Sunday, the Indian women’s team will fancy their chances against lower-ranked Italy in a quarter-final playoff at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre of the Women’s Hockey World Cup 2018.

India finished third in the Pool B with two points — behind top-ranked Ireland (six points) and second-placed England (five) and ahead of the United States (2) with two draws and a loss. India finished third on superior goal difference.

World No.17 Italy, who finished second in Pool A, will look to make a strong comeback after their morale-shattering 1-12 defeat against world No.1 the Netherlands in their final pool game.

However, under the leadership of Rani Rampal, India are totally aware of the challenges Italy possess as an opposition. The women in blue can also draw inspiration from their victory at the 2015 Hockey World League (HWL) Semi-final tournament where they beat the European outfit via penalty shootout.
