IRE-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Prediction Team: Ireland look to hammer down first position and seal direct passage into the semi-finals against Singapore
Two wins out of two and Ireland remain the only team in Pool A to have kept their 100% winning record intact. They are among one of the finest teams in the women’s hockey arena over the course of the last year, walking to the pinnacle of the rankings ever since their silver final finish at the Hockey World Cup. Ever since then, it’s only been all glory for the country where this leg of the Women’s FIH Series Final is being conducted.
They trounced Czech Republic 8-1 in their tournament opener before showcasing a plethora of defensive acumen against Malaysia to hang onto their 2-1 win. However despite the two scintillating performances, top spot in the pool is still not affirmed for them with Malaysia continuously snapping at their heels.
Come Tuesday, Ireland look to wrap up the group stage encounters in Pool A when they take on dwindling Singapore. The 35th ranked Asian team made their foray into the frontier event as the lowest ranked country and their performances have justified their slipping ranking.
Having conceded 20 goals in two matches with just the one in return, Singapore have been left flabbergasted by clearly superior oppositions. It’s been a malicious showing by them, one where they have failed to show any kind of determination or diligence to come out of their predicament.
Probable Winner for IRE-W vs SIN-W
This match is as easy to determine as they come. There’s only one clear obvious winner emerging from this and the identity of the winners is Ireland. They are ranked 8th in the world, the highest ranking accorded to a team this year in the tournament and their performances have epitomised how enterprising a side they are.
Looking to nail down the top spot, Ireland will spare no expense in this match. In the end it could once again become all too silly for Singapore with us seeing Ireland cleaning them out easily.
Goal-Keeper for IRE-W vs SIN-W Dream11
She’s seen 20 goals go past her but has still managed to return 44 points. And the reason for that has been her well versed skill set as a shot stopper, one that has seen her keep out a barrage of shots and that sees Singapore’s Lai come in for us.
Defenders for IRE-W vs SIN-W Dream11
Coming up against a Singapore outfit who have managed to score just one goal throughout their stay in the tournament, Ireland could well keep a cleansheet here. And this sees us bring in a plethora of defenders from Ireland with a trio of players coming in for us.
Our Dream 11 side is going to be represented only by their defenders with Frazer, McCay and Tice all being our choices. Expect them to find it extremely easy to keep out a paper thin attack of Singapore as well as finding themselves getting on the end of the penalty corners.
Midfielders for IRE-W vs SIN-W Dream11
We need to complete our picks of the bare minimum of 4 players from Singapore and we are going to begin here by bringing in Tan and Sanip from their side.
Done with the requisite selection from Singapore, we turn our attention to the more important aspect of our Dream 11 side. It’s time to indulge ourselves in a duo from Ireland and we have decided to pick up Watkins and Mullan, two articulate and exceptional performers whose specialist abilities at performing a defensive and attacking partnership will see them complimenting each other.
Forwards for IRE-W vs SIN-W Dream11
Evans and Daly is the two woman partnership that has been pointed out for the culminating encounter in Pool A. Coming up against a Singapore side who have leaked a bucketful of gaols, these two could well register yet another double digit score past Singapore and continue their misery in the tournament.
Johana from Singapore completes our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ireland’s striker Evans is our captain pick for the match while the vice-captain decision sees McCay get the responsibility.
