After a grilling three-week national camp, which included 55 players, Hockey India has announced a list of 48 players for a 21-day national camp ahead of the FIH men’s Champions Trophy in Breda, Netherlands. The camp will resume on May 28 at the Sports Authority of India facility in Bengaluru.

Hockey India has decided to leave no stone unturned in their quest for the FIH men’s Champions Trophy in Netherlands and has been working hard on its players to help them improve. After a gruelling three-week national camp that focused on individual player-assessment and improvement, 48 players have been selected from a pool of 55 players, who attended the previous camp to work under Indian hockey team chief coach Harendra Singh. 

“In the previous camp, we focused a lot on individual players’ skill set to ensure fewer errors. A lot of attention was also on goal scoring and PC defending,” stated Harendra Singh as quoted by Hindustan Times.

Singh insisted that they have a very strong pool of players for the camp held in preparation for the Champions Trophy and added that he wanted to make history by winning the Champions Trophy, which would be played for the last time and insisted that this would be their focus during the camp.   

“I believe we have a very strong pool of players to choose from for the Champions Trophy to be held in Breda. Since this is the last edition of the prestigious event, there is no doubt we want to be part of history by standing on the podium. That is what our focus will be on as we begin the National Camp,” expressed Harendra Singh.
