Pakistan captain Sohail Abbas scored a last minute penalty corner goal but that did little to mask Britain's dominance and improved effectiveness throughout the Pool A match on Friday. The hosts were almost unrecognizable from the team which was held to a disappointing 2-2 draw by South Africa two days ago and handed Pakistan a 4-1 loss, courtesy goals from James Tindal, Jonty Clarke and two PC conversions from Ashley Jackson. The result opened up the pool and means the Greenshirts will have to win both of their last two games against South African and Australia to harbor any hopes of advancing.
