New Zealand confident of beating Korea

6:23 pm on 5 March 2010

The New Zealand men's hockey team is confident it can turn around yesterday's loss to the Netherlands with a strong performance against South Korea at the world cup in Delhi tonight.

The Black Sticks opened their world cup campaign with a 3-2 win over Canada, but were beaten 3-1 by the fourth ranked Netherlands, despite dominating much of the match.

But the captain Phil Burrows says they have far more experience against the Koreans and the team expects to gain three points from the match.
