"The biggest positive from Champions Trophy is that we are making good progress and that's what I was looking for. That is something we had to start believing in before the Olympic Games," said India's chief coach Roelant Oltmans.
Chief coach Roelant Oltmans has expressed confidence that the Indian men's hockey team is at par with most top teams, following their historic silver-medal finish at the 36th Champions Trophy in London on Friday night.
At the same time, the Dutchman has cautioned the team against complacency going into the final leg of their preparations for the Rio Olympics, which begins with the six-nations invitational tournament in Valencia, Spain on June 27.
"The positive is that we are making good progress and that's what I was looking for. The event also gave us the opportunity to play some big matches ahead of Rio," Oltmans told The Times of India.
