Pakistan clinches 3rd position in Asia Cup hockey tournament
DHAKA (Web Desk) – Pakistan has clinched third position in the 10th Asia Cup Hockey tournament, beating South Korea by 6-3 in the Super Four stage of the tournament in Dhaka on Sunday.
For Pakistan Ejaz Ahmad scored three goals. Ahmad scored in the 10th, 30th and 36th minutes while Rashid Mehmood (26th) and Abu Mahmood (32th) also sounded the board for Pakistan.
Suk Hoon Cho (20th), Namyong Lee (43th) and Inwoo Seo (55th) scored for South Korea.
The Koreans, unlike their previous Super 4s matches, were not at their usual defensive best and Pakistan took complete advantage of that as they attacked from hooter to hooter, showcasing exemplary skill to make space in the Korean circle.
It was Ahmad who was the hero of Pakistan’s victory as he pumped in three splendid goals. Each of his goals was a sheer thrill to watch.
