They say that time doesn’t takes time to change. Such is the fate of Hockey in Pakistan. Being our national game, it should’ve been the prime focus of our attention and for a long period of time, it probably was when Pakistan was the World Champion in Hockey but after that things have only gone south for Hockey in Pakistan.
In the recent bad-luck, Pakistan Hockey Team has been defeated in the Hockey World Championship and that too, in the pre-quarter final stage.
Once the world champions, Pakistan’s Hockey team is out from the world cup following the defeat from Belgium by 3-0. Belgium is currently at number 3 of the World Hockey Ranking.
Perhaps one of the most saddening thing is that Pakistan Hockey Team was unable to win a single match in the tournament. A total of 4 matches were played by Pakistan Hockey Team.
According to details, the four matches were against the Hockey Teams of Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Malaysia. Pakistan Hockey Team has lost its matches from Germany, Netherlands and Belgium while the match with Malaysia Hockey Team ended in a draw.
In totality, the Pakistan National Hockey team was able to score only 2 goals in these four matches which is without a shred of doubt, a very saddening performance by the Pakistan Hockey Team.
The Pakistan National Hockey Team is set to come back to the country following their defeat in the Hockey World Championship.
The World Championship event is happening in India.
