Three wins, all of them comprehensive and the last one over Pakistan being total domination at the Hero Hockey World League, would entitle the Indians to some kind of confidence, but the Indian coach Roelant Oltmans is making sure that this 'confidence' is not complacency.

Admitting he was very pleased with the Indian performance, Oltmans after the 7-1 win over Pakistan, said, "This kind of a performance would please any coach."

"They are the highest ranked team in the tournament and is also a European powerhouse," he added.
