Argentina knocks Pakistan out of Hockey World League

Shukriya Pakistan

Pakistan were eliminated from the Hockey World League Semi-Final event after Argentina beat them 3-1 convincingly in the quarter-final in London on Thursday.

Argentina’s Maico Casello scored twice 22nd and 44th minutes while Gonzalo Peillat put one in in the 33rd.

Pakistan’s Shaan Ali’s strike in the 49th minute was nothing but consolation after Argentina outclassed the Green Shirts.

The loss means Pakistan have lost the opportunity to make it to the finals of the tournament and qualify for the Hockey World Cup that is set to be held in 2018.

To make it to the big event next year, Pakistan will have to win the Asian Champions Trophy which is set to kick off in India later this year.
