ENG vs NED Dream11 Prediction Team: must win encounter for Great Britain sees them come up against a serious Netherlands unit
Great Britain Vs Netherlands FIH Pro League Best Dream 11 Team
A topsy-turvy tournament for Great Britain leaves them in a precariously poised situation. With now just two matches left in the FIH Pro League, Great Britain know it’s now or never for them to imbed in a consistent bit of form, one which sees them emerge as winners from their concluding fixtures.
Stuck on 18 points from 12 games and with Argentina right behind them with the 17, Great Britain know that everything is not lost yet. Above them occupying the last top 4 spot are Germany with 20 points but having played one match more than Great Britain. If Great Britain can come out on top against Netherlands, they’ll do themselves a massive favour by displacing Germany from their spot and occupying it instead.
However, Netherlands are not an opposition which can be easily pushed around. Third in the league standings, the country has lost the sole match in its previous five matches. They have a real penchant of goals and love scouring their way to the back of the opposition’s sticks, something Great Britain could find a treacherous task to control.
In amidst all this calamity for Great Britain, the fact that the last defeat Netherlands were dealt was a 3-1 pummelling against Great Britain will up the side’s chances of repeating their feat. Much like Netherlands, they took have a particular affinity to scoring, incessantly unleashing an absolute carnage irrespective of the identity of the opponent.
This look certain to be a high scoring match, one where we’ll be feasted to some absolutely sensational bit of play at the front of the field. Having stunned table toppers Australia in a penalty shoot-out in their previous encounter, Great Britain have exactly the momentum they needed, something which will fare them well in this match.
For us, this s going to be an edge of the seat thriller. There’s very little to separate the two units and at the end of the day what might work for Great Britain is the fact that they are playing at home. We see them defeating Netherlands once again and moving into the semi-final spots.
Goal-Keeper for ENG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
With 154 points, justifying our pick of Netherland’s goal-keeper Sam is hardly warranted. He’ll face a good amount of shots and those save points will be crucial is taking your rank to the pinnacle.
Defenders for ENG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
Our narrative described this as being an extremely high coring match and when you have defenders with a penchant for goals from both these sides, you have to rope them in your side. The English unit sees Dixon and Creed come in, two players who have withstood the test of time to stand tall and firm. They’ve played 90% of their country’s matches this edition of the league and will be crucial figures if England are to win this match.
From Netherlands it’s going to be a two man pick as well for us in the form of Mink and Gues. Although Netherlands are guilty of falling apart when the opposition ups the ante, we do see these two finding themselves on the end of some successfully penalty conversions.
Midfielders for ENG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
Irrespective of where Great Britain find themselves in the league table, their ramifications are by no means the result of a dearth of worldclass players. And you need to look no further than Roper and Ames to pick out the specialist components of Great Britain’s unit. The two in midfield are players who have time and time again shown fortitude and against Netherlands the script is not going to change either.
Bakker will be the lone pick to hold fort from Netherlands in our Dream 11 outfit.
Forwards for ENG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
With the single midfield pick, it was time to compensate our unit with players from Netherlands and that sees us opt for the two strikers from their side. The fact that there will be goals in this one is a foregone conclusion and with that certainty, we have selected Jeroen and Pruijser.
England are going to be represented by Ward, the highest points getter from both the countries and a player who is bound to find himself on the scoresheet, atleast once if not on multiple occasions.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With that, Ward get the responsibility of captaining our side as well on Saturday while Jeroen is going to be our vice-captain.
