Asian Games 2018: India beat arch-rivals Pakistan to win bronze


XtraTime Web Desk: A bronze medal for India in the Asian Games 2018 again for India as the men’s hockey team beat arch-rivals Pakistan 2-1 in the third place match today.

The Indians, who were the pre-tournament favourites being the highest ranked side in the competition, scored through a field goal from Akashdeep Singh (3rd minute) and a penalty corner conversion by Harmanpreet Singh (50th).




Pakistan’s lone goal came from a counter-attack scored by Muhammad Atiq.




The bronze came as a consolation prize for India after they lost to Malaysia in the semi-finals on Thursday.




The end result would be hard for both the Indians and Pakistan to digest as both the countries were eyeing to earn a direct ticket to 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
