Pakistani women hockey team makes history



The Pakistani women hockey team has made the history by qualifying for the semi-finals of the Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) Cup with a 1-1 draw in opposition to Singapore in their last pool match at the Thailand National Hockey Training Centre in Bangkok yesterday.

The Pakistani women hockey team went into the match identifying a draw would be excellent enough to book a spot in the final four.

By series at stake, the players gazed a little anxious and made the effort to inflict themselves on their rivals in the early hours. They, in conclusion, settled down while and took the lead two minutes prior to the half-time break, be grateful to a field goal by Afshan Noureen.

The match became in the 59th minute when a well-organized Singaporean assault from the right discovered an unmarked Chan Ivy, who ended the move with an excellent gaunt end to level the tie at 1-1.

The other 11 minutes witnessed a constant torrent of Singaporean assaults and had it not been for Pakistani goalkeeper Rizwana Yasmin’s spree of implausible accumulates, the match would have sneak out of their hands.
