Never really watched a hockey game until Ireland v USA. Impressed with the skills. But very impressed with the pace. Constant movement. When a free was given it was taken in seconds unlike football. No dissent. (Why?) Great fitness levels required.

Green cards, if the umpire blows for a free hit and the person who gave it away tries to stop it they are more than likely get a warning, but if they do it within the 23 they will get a green card which is 2 mins sin bin.

Also with the free hit there is no need to wait until the opposing team is 5 yards away before taking it. You can take the free hit to yourself run and the opposing player can’t tackle you if they are with in 5 yards. Ball has to travel 5 yards before they can attempt a tackle. Rolling unlimited subs also help with the constant pace

I see. But no arguing with the ref. No harraunging. That's good. No-one rolling around looking for frees. No simulation. All very refreshing.

Who are the Brazil of world women's hockey? Who is the Ronaldo or Messi?

One player can speak to the ref at a time, does not have to be the captain. If more than one player comes to talk to the ref they run the risk of getting a green card. At this level each team also has one video review, but if they ask for a review and it is right they keep it again they have to ask a question for it that is yes no answer. If they ask for a review and it is wrong they lose it.

Netherlands would be the favourites for this World Cup and keep an eye on Eva De Goede

Ireland are the 1st team into the Quarter Finals after beating India today 1-0 and top their group as England only drew with USA last night

I didn't even realise this was on till I saw about the result today. I thought the hockey forum here was mostly for the ice variation

Why not have it for both, since field hockey is played more here than Ice

I watch ice hockey. Only time I've watched field hockey was at the Olympics. I forgot the game was on today. Will definitely watch the quarter final.

Yeah it makes no sense how there is almost no field hockey discussion, considering it's much more popular here
