Reid said if you score against the team then don’t be disappointed, go to the next level

Reid, who was a member of the Australian team during the 1990 World Cup in Lahore, said, “When you (Indian players) play in a tournament of this level (World Cup), you get carried away with emotions.” Don’t get carried away by emotions. If the opponent snatches the ball from you or scores a goal, then the situation can be very difficult.

Indian men’s hockey team coach Graham Reid has cautioned his players against getting carried away by emotions and advised them to take their game to the next level if a goal goes against them during the FIH World Cup next month. Reid believes that a positive mindset is essential if one has to play in a big tournament like the World Cup. India will begin their campaign in the World Cup against Spain on the opening day of the tournament on January 13 at Rourkela.

Reid, who was a member of the Australian team during the 1990 World Cup in Lahore, said, “When you (Indian players) play in a tournament of this level (World Cup), you get carried away with emotions.” Don’t get carried away by emotions. If the opponent snatches the ball from you or scores a goal, then the situation can be very difficult. “He said,” It is important that you develop this mindset of ‘what will be the next thing’. You can’t change what happened, so focus on the task in front of you, stay focused on what to do.

Describing the Australian team’s preparation for the 1990 World Cup, Reid said in a release issued by Hockey India, “Before the tournament (World Cup 1990) we used to play short matches (of short duration) and play quietly, we talked Recordings of audience noise were played over loudspeakers and we learned not to pay too much attention to someone’s voice, but to get used to the player turning around or looking in his eyes.

Reid said given the highly competitive nature of modern day hockey, it is difficult to predict a strong contender for the World Cup to be jointly hosted by Bhubaneswar and Rourkela. He said, “It is very difficult to pick a team. If I look at today’s position, I can pick Australia, Belgium and India and tomorrow I can again go with Netherlands, Germany and India.” Reid said, “Of course I would put India in the top three Because if we play well then we will have a good chance. Any top eight team can win the World Cup.” Recalling the match against India in the 1990 World Cup, Reid said the goal he scored in that match was special for him.
