Will one of the captains emerge the hero with only two more days of play at the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016

Who will emerge heroes in London this week?

June 15, 2016

With Australia securing their place in the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy Final last night, it's all to play for over the last two days of competition as three teams look for a hero to take them into the showpiece final against the reigning World champions.

Belgium, Great Britain and India are all still in the running ahead of the final round of pool matches on Thursday as they all bid to secure a shot at the title against the Kookaburras.

Great Britain have rallied a battle cry as they call on home supporters to pack the stands and cheer them to victory. India meanwhile will be full of confidence after a number of positive results have stirred passion amongst their supporters across the world. Belgium too will be hoping to continue momentum as they got their form back on track, and will be hoping their fans make the short trip over from their homeland to cheer the Red Lions into the Final.

To qualify for the gold medal match, home nation Great Britain need Australia to beat India in Thursday's first match before they in turn require victory against Belgium. The third match of the day is between reigning Olympic champions Germany and 2014 Champions Challenge winners Korea.

It's all to play for in London so don't miss your chance to be part of all the drama and excitement over the next two days.
