England Selection

England have named Nick Bandurak, Ollie Payne and Tom Russell in their squad to face Argentina in the next round of FIH Pro League fixtures.

Bandurak and Payne retain their places after impressing against Spain in the previous set of matches, whilst Russell is named in a senior international squad for the first time.

Congratulations to all three and good luck!

Interim men’s head coach Zak Jones told England Hockey’s media: “The squad is very much looking forward to upcoming games here in Argentina. The aim is to continue to build on both the momentum and the positive aspects of our performances from our first two outings against Spain. 

“However, we are fully aware of the real challenge that Argentina will present, as can be seen from their recent performances in the Pan Am Cup and their two FIH Hockey Pro League games against Belgium. I am really looking forward to seeing how this young squad respond to a different environment and style of play as we continue to build and grow our game.”

England’s men will take on Argentina at 19:30 on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 February, with the women following suit against the same opponent at 22:00 on the same days. All four games will be shown live on BT Sport.
