London, Aug 1 (CNMSPORTS) - India will look to avenge the pool stage loss, when they face Ireland in the quarter-final of the womens hockey World Cup at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre here on Thursday.
World no. 10 India last played in a quarter-final encounter 40 years ago in the 1978 Madrid Women's World Cup.
The team's semi-final appearance in the inaugural edition of the World Cup in 1974 remains the best Indian performance in the history of the prestigious event.
However, these stats would not play on the team's mind when they take on the World no.16 Ireland on Thursday according to team Skipper Rani Rampal.
"All I know is, we are not done yet. Our best hockey is yet to come," she asserted adding that the only thing on their minds would be to avenge their narrow 0-1 loss in the Pool Stage to Ireland and book a place in the Semi Final against the winners of Spain Vs Germany quarter-final match.
