Field Hockey Canada > Canadians in key matches Thursday at Commonwealth Games

The Canadian National Field Hockey Teams book-end the day of hockey in Glasgow on Thursday as both teams play key matches at opposite ends of the day.

First up, the Men’s National Team takes on England in the final match of its preliminary round at 1amPST/4amEST. The men are fighting for positioning to determining who they will face in the next round and for which position.

England is ranked fifth in the world and has two convincing wins (6-1 vs Trinidad and Tobago; 8-1 vs Malayisa) and one narrow loss (2-1) to No.6 New Zealand this tournament.

The women play twelve hours later in the final game of the day in Glasgow, in a classification match for 7th place versus Malaysia at 1pmPST/4pmEST.

The women are looking to finish their tournament on a high note versus the Malaysians who are ranked one spot higher (21st) than Canada in the FIH women’s world rankings. Malaysia has not won a game or scored a goal this tournament.
