KARACHI: Pakistan’s disappointing performance at the International Super Series Hockey continued as they lost 4-2 against England in nine-a-side hockey at the Perth Hockey Stadium on Friday and failed to progress to the next round.

The defeat was Pakistan’s second loss in the series after they lost to Australia by the same scoreline on Thursday.

Pakistan opened the scoring through Abdul Haseem Khan but England soon equalized. Pakistan regained the lead and were 2-1 before half-time as Umar Bhutta scored the second goal for the Greenshirts.

However, England scored three quick goals in the second half as Pakistan let their lead slip.

Pakistan next play India on Saturday and the two sides will face each other again on Sunday in the third-fourth place play-off match.

The Champions Trophy will be played after the International Super Series from December 1-9.

Pakistan hockey never improves, infact its performance goes down this drain. This what happens when our hockey federation is runned by croupt and unelected officials. Players lack flair, passion and proper trainining along with proper guidance to good hockey. Pakistan needs a foriegn coach that can teach our players to European style hockey. As these days hockey is a tactical and scientific game along stamina and fitness. Lack of this has put our hockey in ruins and doomed it for good.
