India vanquished Pakistan in an electric match
India unexpectedly thrashed experienced Pakistani side beating them 4-1, with a healthy margin of 3 goals, hence getting an important goal margin.
With 19,000 stadium-packed crowd roaring India jeetega, it seems The God must have paid ears to them & it surely turns out to be. When couple of drag flicks of Sohail Abbas returned from the goal post, God was playing as a 12th man.
Only 12th man didn't helped India, Rajpal's guys put tremendous effort in the field & some astute substitutions by coach Brasa turns these quotes real during the match.
God helps those who helps themselves.
& if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
From the beginning, Indians made some quick moves into the D-zone but failed to capitalize the chances due to strong Pakistan defence, with some of the most experienced guys standing with captain Zeeshan Ahmed & brilliant saves by goal-keeper.
But Shivendra Singh found the net in the 27th minute with the rebound & crowd erupted in joy.
Then, Sandeep Singh drag-flicked in the last minute of the first half.
With india dominating the first half, pakistanis feel the pressure of the game but with superb defence, they failed to enter into the castle.
The Indians started from where they left in the first half and made it 3-0 two minutes into the second half when veteran forward Prabhjot Singh scored.
Sandeep once again cheered the crowd in the 57th minute converting another penalty corner.
The great effort was put by all the guys & they deserved this victory.
Earlier, in the first encounter of this World Cup, Spain beat SA 4-2 and England shunned Australia, with their great defence, defeating them 3-2.
The credit is due to England goal-keeper,Fair who made acrobatic saves to restrict Australia to 2 goals.
