India vs South Africa Hockey World Cup Live: Hello and welcome!
India were flawless in their 8-0 drubbing of Japan and they may do something similar today but there won't be too many smiles on the players' faces even after that. Their real aim would have been to be playing in the semi-finals and possibly better instead of fighting for finishing a lowly ninth place. But, it is what it is, and it will all only get worse for them if they don't put their best foot forward today. Considering just how good they looked against Japan, it will be a shocker indeed if India don't win this by a good margin.
