Hockey News : Indian men’s hockey team optimistic ahead of Argentina tour

The 22-member Indian Men's Hockey Team led by Skipper Manpreet Singh left for Buenos Aires, Argentina from KIA, Bengaluru early Wednesday morning. This will be the team's second outing this year after an unbeaten tour of Europe last month where they took on Germany and Great Britain. The six-match tour against hosts Argentina includes four practice matches apart from the back-to-back FIH Hockey Pro League matches on 11th and 12th April. The tour against the Olympic Champions is largely being viewed as an exposure for the team in their preparations for the Tokyo Olympic Games this July. Returning to the Indian team after a year, Manpreet Singh shared his excitement about playing against a top-quality side. He said, I am very excited to return to the team and I am looking forward to the matches against the Olympic Champions Argentina. Not playing competitive hockey for over a year has been a big setback but this is something every team in the world is facing due to the pandemic.
