KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Jan 20 Sun : Pakistan struggled in the initial
stages but still manage to defeat hosts Malaysia 4-1 in the Six Nation
Invitational Tournament at the National Hockey Stadium today.
The home team was contend to defend with an occasional foray into the
Pakistani half when opportunity presented itself.
But Pakistan was superior in all departments and despite coming close
several times failed to find the mark.
They were awarded their first penalty corner in the 30th minute and made
full use of it to go one up.
Knowing that Malaysian keeper Roslan Jamaluddin was coming out as the first
runner, the Pakistanis let the ball pass the stopper.
Shahbaz Ahmad relayed the ball to Khasif Jawad who in turn squared it for
Saqlain Mohamad to deflect it into an empty goal.
Shahbaz made it 2-0 in the 45th minute capitalizing on a Malaysian defence
hesitation in the semi circle to send a hefty hit past Roslan.
But the Malaysian were undeterred and came out of their defensive shell.
Their efforts were rewarded when Tajol Rosli Mohammad deflected past Qasim
Mumammad in the Pakistan goal in the 62nd minute
Any hopes of a Malaysian fight back were dispelled when Pakistan scored
their third goal three minutes later through Khasif Jawad.
Sohail Abbas completed the rout scoring the fourth in the 69th minute.
