Today Green Shirts started their practical Olympic journey with a hockey match against Spain that ended up in a draw, putting the ranked 8 team Pakistan and ranked 5 team Spain sharing one point each. In first half both the teams were in attacking mode but it ended ‘scoreless’ however the second half started with both sides scoring back to back goals in no time of early second half. Spain utilised its players to produce the seamless attack that many Spanish players are experts of especially, Santiago Freixa, Pablo Amat and Eduard Tubau.
In the end one small advice for the Pakistani (Hockey) fans, being so happy over a tied game shows the motivation level we have towards winning. the match tied team Pakistan lost two points and these points can haunt the team later on in the tournament. There for men in green shirts playing out there and all those fans of green shall wake up, players need to come up with the spirit and supporters shall support them like a winning side should be.
