They will take on hosts India in what promises to be a humdinger of a quarter-final.

Earlier on Monday, England had eased past New Zealand with a 2-0 victory. Scoring early helped England take control of the match as they added to their lead in the third quarter to end New Zealand’s hopes of making it to next round. Olympic champions Argentina await them in the quart-finals.

The France hockey contingent scripted a piece of history that will go down in the sporting books of their country by becoming the first French team to make it to the quarter-final stage of the hockey world cup. In what was arguably the most fiercely contested match of the cross-overs, France managed to edge past a resolute Chinese outfit by one goal via a clement goal in the 36th minute. They will face Australia in what will without a doubt be a much sterner test for them.

The quarter-finals will begin at 4:45 pm IST on Thursday, 12 December with Argentina Vs England kicking off proceedings. India will round off the quarter-finals when the home side entertains the Netherlands in the last match of the stage on 13 December at 7:00 pm IST.
