IPOH, MALAYSIA:

Pakistan followed up their earlier victory in the Asia Cup against Japan and host team Malaysia by defeating a weak competitor, Chinese Taipei, at the Azlan Shah Stadium on Tuesday, Express News reported.


Pakistan scored 13 goals against Chinese Taipei, which failed to secure even a single goal.


After successive victories against Japan, Malaysia and Chinese Taipei, Pakistan stands first in Group A with nine points.


Pakistan will play in the semi finals against Oman or defending champion South Korea, depending on whichever team bags the victory title in the match.


Pakistan has maintained a good record at the Asian level for the past few years, winning a gold medal at the Asian Games in Guangzhou in 2010 and the title at Asian Champions Trophy last December.


However, the Asia Cup has not been a lucky event for Pakistan as the title has eluded the three-time champions since 1989.

Pakistan scored 52 goals against Macao not 58, and every player except goal keeper scored at least once. The goal keeper was also given a chance to score through a penalty stroke but he missed:)
