Excited to compete in Bhubaneswar at the iconic Kalinga Stadium, Harris said, “The boys are very excited. This is the first time for many that they have been in such a hockey atmosphere.

While speaking about the team’s preparations, Chile Captain Nicolas Abujatum said, “We have been preparing a lot. We were a part of the Pan-American Championship, which was a big part of our process. Afterward, we continued training for the World Cup with our staff. We are excited to play at Kalinga Stadium, as most of us have not played in such a great stadium.”

Meanwhile, Team Malaysia arrived in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday night. Speaking on the prospect of playing at the iconic Kalinga Stadium Malaysia Head Coach Wallace Tan expressed, “Our team is very excited to play at the Kalinga Stadium as it is a very big and respected stadium.
