India vs Spain is the first match for the Harmanpreet Singh-led Indian men’s hockey team at the Hockey World Cup 2023. The match is set to be played at the Birsa Munda International Hockey Stadium, Rourkela, one of the two venues of the marquee event this year. The previous edition of the tournament was also staged in Odisha. Belgium had gone on to win that edition of the tournament, beating Netherlands 3-2 in the penalty shootout.

While India are ranked number 6 in the world, Spain are ranked number 8 and things look set for a riveting encounter between these two teams.

While India have won the title once way back in 1975, beating Pakistan in the finals, Spain are yet to win the Hockey World Cup. The match is set to commence at 07:00 pm (IST).
