Malaysia's head coach Roelant Oltmans believes that his team's recent performances will give them the required confidence to make an impact at the 14th edition of Men's Hockey World Cup 2018.
Recently, Malaysia won bronze at the Asian Champions Trophy after defeating Japan for the third-place match, where India and Pakistan were the champions as they shared the title.
For World Cup, team Malaysia has been placed in Pool D with Netherlands, Germany and Pakistan.
"We understand that we’re in a very difficult pool, so our first aim is to get into the next round," Malaysia head coach Oltmans told to International Hockey Federation after winning bronze at the Asian Champions Trophy 2018.
"We will try to make this happen by performing at the very top of our game. Once we achieve this aim, we will re-set our goals for the next stages," he added.
