What they say

Billy Bakker: “When I look to the earlier games we played against Great Britain they gave a lot of energy, of course, and they give a lot of strength and power hockey. They also have a lot of skillful players so it will be a tough game of course. They have a lot of talent and a lot of young energy. We are looking to attack them with a lot of speed. We have a good penalty corner routine. It will be a good clash and we will see what the outcome is.

Adam Dixon: “I think the Dutch are going to be really up for these games and they are going to want to be playing on the front foot: aggressive, counter-attacking, fluid – the style of play they are famous for. The challenge for us will be to match them toe-for-toe and to come into the matches with the attitude that these games are winnable.

Eva de Goede: “It is just about enjoying hockey, enjoying being together and showing everyone our best because we have missed this so much so that will be our biggest strength. We will enjoy being back and being on the biggest stage again.
