The Netherlands took the gold medal in the men’s final of the Indoor Hockey World Cup thanks to a 3-2 triumph against Austria.

The Iranian team finished fourth but surpassed all expectations.

Iran, ranked 10th in the FIH Indoor World Rankings, caused one of the biggest shocks in Indoor World Cup history by hammering Russia and booking a ticket to the semi-finals.
