Star India men’s hockey team goalkeeper PR Sreejesh has achieved almost everything in his 17-year-long illustrious career, except for a World Cup medal and he wants to fulfil his “dream” this time in the ongoing showpiece at home.
Sreejesh, 34, had played a major role in India’s historic bronze win in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 and the team is hoping to finish on the podium in the ongoing World Cup in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela after a hiatus 48 years.
India had won their maiden World Cup medal, a gold, in the 1975 edition in Kuala Lumpur.

“That [World Cup medal] is the only medal which is missing in my cabinet. The Indian team are working hard to finish on the podium and that is my dream,” Sreejesh told PTI.
“If we do that, I can also say that I have a medal from the Olympics as well as from the World Cup,” he added.
Sreejesh, who has played 226 senior international matches since making his debut in 2006, has won medals in all prestigious tournaments, except for the World Cup.
