AUS vs BEL Dream11 Team: Rehearsal for what could be a potential final in the league is set to light up the tournament on Thursday
Australia vs Belgium FIH Pro League Best Dream 11 Team
Having asserted themselves of a place in the semi-finals of the prestigious FIH Pro League, table toppers Belgium and Australia square off against each other for a shot at consolidating top spot in the table. Not only will it reassert their claim for the title but also give them a relatively easier fixture in the semi-final, a proposition neither side will want to give up on.
In Belgium and Australia, we have arguably two of the most sensational sides in the marquee tournaments. The two unit have been a goal scoring phenomenon, raking up the 82 goals in between them to wipe the floor with oppositions throughout their entire stay in the league.
At the moment, after having played the 12 matches each, just the one point separates these two units in first and second place. Having 26 points, Australia find themselves pegging World Cup winners Belgium by the tiniest of margins, occupying a position Belgium will be looking to make their own at the end of the 60 minutes.
This is not only a clash between two of the favourites for the glistening trophy but also potentially a rehearsal for what could be the final. After having seen their form gone on a way ward spiral in recent times, with Belgium losing three of their last five matches and Australia two of their previous five, the match is also a massive opportunity for either to iron out the pertinent issues which have come to the fore off late.
Expect the attack from both these sides to be unsparing together. There’s going to be no margin for error in this cliff-hanger and we only see Belgium winning this given the better attacking powers they posses in their artillery. They have refused to revert to a more controlled style of play, consistently peppering sides with a barrage of attacking moves and we expect the same to prove fruit for them today.
Goal-Keeper for AUS vs BEL Dream11
The only side of our Dream 11 side which gave us headaches, we have ultimately opted for Belgium’s Vanasch to be our man in between the sticks. He’s finally nailed down a starting spot in the side and as Belgium look to try out their best playing 11 for this match, we see him being their pick once again.
Defenders for AUS vs BEL Dream11
Just the three defenders are going to represent us over here with the two coming in from Belgium. Be it their involvement in the penalty corners to playing a crucial role in taking the penalties as well, Doren and Hendrickx have played a critical role in ensuring Belgium’s attacking play is seamlessly built up from the back.
They both are coming in for us while from Australia we have opted to select Dawson.
Midfielders for AUS vs BEL Dream11
Time to bolster the numbers of our side and given the involvement of both the countries’ midfielders in putting up a perseverant wall as the defensive midfielders while intertwining assists and goals as the attacking midfielders, we have gone with the four picks.
We’ll begin with Australia first, country which sees a trio of players come in for us. The reason for the country’s success in attack has been their pivot in this part of the formation, ensuring that the ball is scoured through defences with consummate ease. Beale, Whetton and Zalewski are all going to be imbedded in our side while the Belgium side see only Kina coming in.
Forwards for AUS vs BEL Dream11
When you score 48 goals across 12 matches, a staggering average of 4 goals per match, you know you have the most sensational attacking options to choose from. And in Charlier and Dockier, Belgium have exactly that, a deadly combination which has had defences in a scruff throughout their sojourn in the frontier tournament.
We are going to finish up the picks for today by getting in Govers from Australia, a man who has single handidly taking the brunt upon himself to find the back of the goal.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Both our picks are coming in from Belgium with striker Dockier our captain while defender Doren has been selected as the vice-captain.
