India passed their first goal in the Hockey World Cup when they thrashed arch-rivals Pakistan 4-1 !
After Prabhjot added the third goal to India’s tally immediately after the break, Sandeep Singh blasted in the fouth goal, from penalty corner as well as India looked to build an unassailable lead over their arch-rivals.
Luck meanwhile, deserted pathetic Pakistan in the second-half as well as yet another strike from Sohail Abbas hit the goal post.
Though Pakistan did get a consolation goal in the 59th minute, the 4-1 margin showed how India dominated this match.
With all 3 points in the kitty, India now go on top of Pool B because of better goal difference
Team India will play Australia now on Tuesday.
India looked awesome on the field, but Pakistanis were comparatively moronic and failed to pose much problems to the Indian defenders.
The only penalty corner Pakistan got in the first-half also failed to pay any results as the ball rebounded off the bar.
India’s defense held firm ever since after scoring twice in the first half
