    Congrats to Pakistan Hockey but still sad for losing to India by 3-1. I cannot understand why coaches are not working on defense, it’s very weak. I think our team is on number one spot for conceding most goals.

    Go for these type of useless records and make records of conceding goals in galore in defeat. Good luck to team green. Even to beat China is becoming extreme difficulty now a days forget about top teams.
