ARG-W vs NED-W Dream11 Team: Argentina look to make one final claim for the first position in the league standings when they take on world champions Netherlands
Netherlands Vs Argentina FIH Women’s Pro League Best Dream 11 Team
The only clash of Thursday from the dramatic land of the FIH Women’s Pro League is one which should be enough to fill our appetite for hockey. It’s a clash between two formidable units, undoubtedly the best sides in the league who rightfully sit in the first and second positions.
Having sealed their berth in the semi-finals of the tournament, for both thee sides, this match gives a humongous opportunity at squaring off against a country they could be potentially facing once again in a week’s time. This is a clash which brings with it forward to the table the identity of a perspective final and expect the performances to be elevated with these two outfits clash heads today night.
With the two defeats in between them in the 28 matches the two sides have played in convulsion in the marquee league, the one each for either side, numbers speak enough about the kind of hockey the two have doled out. They’ve been two teams who have seamlessly blended in attack with defence and we are bound to see a cracker of a match today, one you have to pencil your calendars for.
We have decided to side with World Cup winners and the number one ranked side team in the hockey fraternity Netherlands over here. Although in Argentina they have their toughest test till date, a side who just like them have won all five of their previous encounters, it’s the water tight nature of their defence which sees them go in as the favourites.
Argentina have both scored and managed to keep out lesser goals than Netherlands and although there’s taking nothing away from the kind of hockey Argentina have played, Netherlands have been just that extra bit better than them. They should win this match and extend their lead at the top by 7 points and ascertain for themselves the top spot.
Goal-Keeper for ARG-W vs NED-W Dream11
The majority of our defensive picks are going to be from Netherlands while the middle of the park sees the players from Argentina coming in. And staying true to that, we have opted for Veenendaal to come in for us.
Defenders for ARG-W vs NED-W Dream11
14 matches, 8 goals conceded, lesser than one per match and these are staggering numbers which have seen Netherlands move ahead of the rest of the pack. They’ve undone their counterpart’s attacking threats with such ease and effortless ravishing efforts that we just can’t help but bring in a duo of defensive options from the country.
Coming in from the side are two stalwarts in Margot and Caia. From Argentina it’s an attacking minded partnership of Lucina and Silvina, a pairing which has been responsible for ensuring that the penalty corners as well as penalty conversion are carried out immaculately.
Midfielders for ARG-W vs NED-W Dream11
The one pick we just can’t see ourselves venturing clear of whenever Netherlands are in action is Xan. The heart of their pivot, she’s been responsible of holding together like glue, a midfield which has not been able to cement on the other picks. In what can be argued to be the weakest side of their team, Xan has compensated perfectly for a lack of many options and we will be pairing her up with Eva, someone who in recent times has offered that missing link.
From Argentina there’s going to be just one player who comes in for us in the form of Eugenia.
Forwards for ARG-W vs NED-W Dream11
A mammoth 64 goals in 28 matches in between them and Netherlands themselves have managed to score 36 of those. The reason for their raucous success over the last year has been their effervescent attacking gameplan, one which has mesmerised and had us by the hinges everymen.
They are going to score a bagful of goals once again and that sees us get in both Matla and Welten. Rebecchi for Argentina completes proceedings on the day for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Netherlands will represent both the picks with Caia our captain for this one while Matla becomes the vice-captain.
