In the recently concluded Pool A Hockey match, Pakistan secured a good win against South American giants Argentina. With Argentina tipped to win
the game comprehensively, following some poor hockey from the green shirts. However they impressed a decent Pakistani contingent at the Riverbank Arena in London and delivered a 2-0 victory, with Muhammad Imran and Captain Sohail Abbas being the scorers.
Though Argentina played decent and defensive hockey, the lapse in concentrations cost them two penalty corners on which Pakistan were able to capitalise and secure the win. Pakistan are now placed third in the pool with hosts GB above them in second due to a better goal difference and the mighty Australians sitting nicely at the top of the pack.
Pakistan’s next match is on the 3rd of August against hosts GB, and the green shirts will be hoping for another win to almost secure their involvement in the next stages of the competition.
