India humbled Pakistan 7-1 in their third group match of Pool B of the World Hockey League in London. India went top of Pool B to jump over Netherlands in a win that would be remembered for a long time. India thrashed Pakistan 7-1 with three goals in the first half and went one up in after the break to score four in the second to hand the perennial rivals a miserable outing. The win was India’s 56th against Pakistan and the biggest one in history till now.

India, who have got a direct entry to both the Hockey World League Final and the World Cup as hosts, experimented with their team while Pakistan’s chances of reaching the quarterfinals are almost none extinct after another loss. India started the match strongly and was clearly the better of the two teams. Better conversion rate, the fluidity of the midfield and some good passing by Manpreet and SV Sunil have ensured that they are way ahead at half-time as they scored 3 goals in the first half. The way they built up play through the back and midfield unsettled Pakistan who went on to concede four more in the second half. Harmanpreet’s second goal, an unchallenged drag-flick three minutes after the half-time break, gave India a handsome 4-0 lead. Akashdeep scored an outrageous goal as he took a peach of a touch to trap a ball from the right and then thrashed it into the roof of the goal to complete the scoring. India won comfortably by 7-1 in the FIH Hockey World League Semi-final thanks to braces from Akashdeep Singh, Harmanpreet Singh, and Talwinder Singh.

 

India will again be active on June 20 (Tuesday) as they square off against Netherland in their fourth match of Pool B. That promises to be a cracker of a game as two teams playing free flowing hockey take on each other.
