Overview

Hosts Great Britain had themselves to blame for not reaching the final of the 2016 Men's Hockey Champions Trophy drawing with Belgium 3-3 on 16 June. The Brits who needed a win to qualify were rocked early on and at one stage were behind by three goals only to fight back and eventually draw the game.

Their best finish came in 2010 when they were runners-up. They now have a chance to at least claim the bronze medal on 17 June in what could be a mouth-watering clash.

Defending champions Germany who have had a disappointing tournament, salvaged some pride in their final pool game thrashing South Korea 7-0. This result, which is their biggest-ever in Champions Trophy history, helped push them to third place on the points table after spending the majority of the tournament at the bottom.

While it has not gone all to plan for Germany in the competition, they have lost only one game so far and go into this clash as the favourites to pick up the bronze medal.
