Evening All - Stephen Clark here for a first for me. Hockey is a new sport for BTM coverage and this is a classic David v Goliath clash as Ireland take on Holland. Anthems underway and the action will start very soon

NETHERLANDS: Stockman, Schuurman, Bakker, Van Ass, Hertzberger, De Wijn, Baart, Pruijser, Hofman, Van Der Horst, Van Der Weerden

Ireland definitely win the Anthem singing. Here is their line up for tonight

I DEMAND A WIN FOR IRELAND, STEVE. UNDERSTOOD? GOOD....

IRELAND: D Harte, Jackson, Gormley, Watt, Jermyn, Magee, Shimmins, Darling, Good, Gleghorne, C Harte

Just lost my stream for a minute but we are underway now.

2 - Early pressure from the Dutch as Ireland struggle to get the ball out of their own corner, but eventually its run out of play and Ireland can clear. 0-0

Dutch the silver medallists in London on the front foot here and David Harte forced into a save as the Dutch get a shot in on goal - All Holland early on

Ireland have their first attack and they move the ball nicely down the right hand side, ball hit across the goal and Stockman is forced into making a save from Southern. 0-0

Another chance for Darling as Ireland start to grow into the game. The Green Machine are warming up. 0-0

First penalty corner goes to Holland as Bakker tries to get into the box and Southern slides in and is penalised.
