Olympic silver medallist Belgium and Canada were on Tuesday forced to make a change each in their squads due to injuries at the ongoing men's hockey World Cup here.
Belgium's Emmanuel Stockbroek has been withdrawn from the squad due to a hamstring injury sustained in his side's 2-2 draw against India on Sunday. He will be replaced by Antoine Kina, a 22-year-old with 29 caps to his name.
Kina was a member of the Belgium U-21 team that claimed the silver medal at the Junior World Cup in Lucknow two years ago.
Canada too were forced to make a change after Brandon Pereira was withdrawn because of an injury. Forward Floris van Son will replace Pereira in the 18-member squad.
Van Son, 26, has 26 caps to his name and had competed in last year's Hockey World League Semi-Final in London, the 2017 Pan American Cup in Lancaster (USA) and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The replacements were made after both Belgium and Canada sought approval from the International Hockey Federation (FIH).
Both the players will be involved in their team's final Pool C matches on Saturday. While Belgium will take on South Africa, Canada will play hosts India.
