Olympic silver medallist Belgium will be looking to create history by making their maiden World Cup final appearance when they take on England in the first semi-final of Men's Hockey World Cup at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar today.

The match will begin at 4 this evening.

Meanwhile, a rare history awaits two-time defending champions Australia as they chase a record hat-trick of titles, taking on the Netherlands in the second semi-final at 6.30 p.m.

The World No. one Australia is second only to four-time champions Pakistan, having won the world title thrice before, which includes back-to-back gold medals in the last two editions of the tournament in 2010 and 2014.

The Dutch, who have won the title thrice before, the last time being in 1998, too would be desperate to break their 20-year-old jinx.
