Argentina are placed in Pool C along with Germany, South Africa and Spain at the 2018 FIH Women's Hockey World Cup.


Germany will provide the biggest test for Argentina in the pool stage. However, it is hard to not see Argentina not top the pool and proceed atleast to the semifinals of the competition.
