India and South Africa will face each other on the first day of Hockey World Cup 2018 tournament. Both the teams are in pool C.  Not amongst the favourites to lift the trophy, South Africa players have paid from their own pockets to just be a part of the men’s hockey World Cup beginning on Wednesday.

World number 15 South Africa coach Mark Hopkins said the biggest hurdle for the growth of the game in South Africa is “funding”. With world ranked fifth India at the other end in their first match, South Africa have a tough task at hand but Hopkins is looking at the positives.
