Legendary Team of November 2018 (Results)
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the voting. A total of 16 teams were nominated for this month's award, but there can only be one winner. Out of the 16 nominees, 13 teams received votes from the community. Below you will see the top three being mentioned, as well as the winner of the prize money. This should eventually become a monthly event. So let's see what will happen at the end of December. (1) Team Netherlands (women) Field Hockey - 39 points Team Netherlands won the last ever Champions Trophy in Field Hockey, at least in the current format. It was the seventh time in history they won the event. There were group stage wins over Australia, China, Argentina, Japan, and Great Britain. Australia was then beaten again in the final, 5-1. Marijn Veen became top goalscorer of the tournament with five goals, Eva de Goede was named as best player of the tournament and Veen also won the young player of the tournament award.

(2) Team Croatia (men) Tennis - 20 points Team Croatia won the Davis Cup 2018 by beating France in Lille, 3-1. Borna Ćorić won the first match against Jérémy Chardy 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. Marin Čilić then gave Croatia a 2-0 lead when he beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. France came back into the clash after winning the doubles. Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert won against Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavić in four sets (6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6). Marin Čilić then finished the match by winning against Lucas Pouille 7-6, 6-3, 6-3.

They qualified for the round of 16, as the second team in Group H after Suwon Samsung Bluewings. After beating two Chinese teams (Shanghai SIPG and Tianjin Quanjian) in the next two round, they faced Suwon Samsung Bluewings again. After winning the first match 3-2, the return ended in 3-3, meaning they reached the final, in which they faced Iranian team Persepolis FC. The first leg of the final ended in a 2-0 win, goals scored by Léo Silva and Serginho. A week later in Tehran, no goals were scored, which means that the Antlers won the cup.
