Netherlands vs Chile Highlights: The first quarter of the match ended with the Netherlands leading 1-0. The Dutch earned a PC in the sixth minute and Jip Janssen wasted no time in converting them.

The second quarter turned out to be more miserable for the debutant Chilean team as Derck de Vilder (22nd minute), Thijs van Dam (23rd minute), skipper Thierry Brinkman (25th minute) took barely three minutes to make it 4-0 for the Dutch. Netherlands earned a PC in the 29th minute and Janssen converted it successfully to make it 5-0 for the Netherlands. At the end of the second quarter and first half, Netherlands led 5-0.

The third quarter was the worst for Chileans and three-time champions Netherlands continued making a mockery out of their defence.

India vs Wales Highlights: Akashdeep scored a brace to help India secure a 4-2 victory over Wales. With the win, India finished 2nd in Pool D. However, with England finishing top with a better goal difference, India will have to go through to the quarterfinals through Cross-Overs. Wales staged a mini-comeback in Q3. But Akashdeep and Harmanpreet Singh made the difference. India will now face NewZealand in the Crossover.

Needing to win by a margin of eight goals to directly qualify for the quarterfinals, India failed to live up to the expectations as they finished second in Pool D behind England.

Both India and England ended their pool engagements on seven points each after winning two matches and drawing one but the European side topped Pool D on the basis of superior goal difference.
