The 2012 Champions Trophy quarterfinal games are set and an exciting day of hockey awaits the fans in Melbourne and around the world as the evenly-matched field plays the all-or-nothing games. For the men’s Champions Trophy, it is the first time-ever that the new quarterfinal system has been used where the top seed from one pool crosses over the play the bottom seed from the other pool, while the second and third seeded teams do the same. The format has been the source of spirited debate in international hockey circles, but like it or hate it, eight teams will be trimmed down to four at the end of tomorrow.
The Dutch are one of the most experienced teams at the Champions Trophy and will take on one of the relative rookies in their quarterfinal meeting against New Zealand. Despite lack of Champions Trophy caps for the Black Sticks, the two nations have still met six times in Champions Trophy history. The Dutch have won four of those meetings, drawn once and lost only once. The lone loss came in 2010 in a 3-1 preliminary round decision. The cards are definitely stacked against the Black Sticks historically in Thursday’s game. Add to the fact that the Netherlands is the top seed out of its pool and it means New Zealand will have to bring their A Game tomorrow to stay in the hunt for a medal.
