The Indoor Hockey World Cup takes place in Vienna, Austria from Feb 14 to 18. The men's team from Trinidad & Tobago have qualified in group A and will face top ranked Germany on the first day of competition on Wednesday.
Later that evening they will face fourth ranked Russia. Further group matches will include Australia, Czech Republic and Switzerland.
The team spent a preparatory period in Germany where they played a series of warm up matches. The most recent of which against THC Ahrensburg ended in a 6:6 draw after T&T fell behind 5:1.
Newly appointed technical director, Nico Stankewitz, said of the team, "We will certainly be underdogs at the World Cup, but we are no fete match team either that is only going for the fun of it."
