The matches in preparation for the world cup are being touted as a continental challenge between 3 times world cup winners, and 8 times champions trophy winners Holland and 4 times world cup winners and 3 times champion trophy winners Pakistan.

The teams are in full strength with Pakistan boasting of star forward Rehan Butt, Goal keeper Salman Akbar, defender and captain Zeeshan Ashraf and the legendary Sohail abbas. Holland are led by Jeroen Delmee and coached by respected coach Michel.
