India's hockey coach Roelant Oltmans expressed his displeasure following the team's sloppy performance in the 2-2 draw against Canada at the Rio Olympics.

But the men in blue don’t have much time to sulk as they have their upcoming quarter-final match against Belgium on Sunday.

The Belgians finished first in pool A and hence will be teamed against India.

The first quarter-final match will be played between Spain and Argentina.

Netherlands will take on the mighty Australians while defending champions Germany will face New Zealand.

Spain v Argentina (18:30 IST)

India v Belgium (21:00 IST)

Netherlands v Australia (02:30 IST)

Germany v New Zealand (05:00 IST)
