Asia Cup Hockey | Brilliant India crush Malaysia 6-2; move to top of points table
India completely outplayed Pakistan, to secure their spot in the 2017 Hockey Asia Cup final. After that, Harmanpreet Singh scored the second goal in the 19th minute. India will now face arch-rivals Pakistan in the next match on Saturday.
South Korea needed to win the Asia Cup gold to make the grade.
India now have seven points from three games, while Pakistan are eliminated as they have one point, having suffered two defeats and a draw against Malaysia.
It was India who got the first chance to take the lead in the 24th minute through Ramandeep Singh but the Pakistani goalkeeper Amjad Ali deflected his shot to deny the Indians. India will like to continue with their winning momentum while Pakistan would try to change the course of wind in their favour as another game loss will be game over for the Green Brigade. The Men in Blue once again came close to scoring when Harmanpreet was denied by crossbar after India won their second penalty corner. They notched up three successive wins in the Pool stage but the forward line was put to test against a highly defensive Korean side in their first Super-4s match.
