    Korea struggles to defeat Pakistan 1-0

    28 September 2000

    Korea will play for gold in the Men's Hockey final after defeating the more fancied Pakistanis 1-0 in the first of two semi-finals at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games on Thursday.

    Pakistan VS Korea
    SOCOG / SOCOG


    Pakistan will have to make do with playing for bronze.

    In what was an even match both teams struggled to gain control. It took until the 57th minute for Korea to break through for the only goal.

    Both teams created many opportunities in the first half but were thwarted by each other's impenetrable defence. Korea took the upper hand and with less than 15 minutes remaining SONG Seung-Tae ran the ball down the wing beating two Pakistani defenders and the goal keeper. But he found no support.

    Less than two minutes later the Koreans again cut through the Pakistani defence, only to miss the goal.

    Pakistan came out fighting in the second half and looked to be in control, creating more opportunities than the Korean team. Pakistan came close to taking the lead with a shot at goal hitting the post and as the pressure mounted LIM Jung-Woo (KOR) was stretchered off.

    The Pakistanis had six penalty corners but were unable to convert any, because the speed of the Korean defenders shut down penalty corner specialist Sohail ABBAS.

    Korea regained control of the match with two penetrating attacks before SONG flicked the ball past the keeper to convert a penalty corner. Moments later they looked to score again, but the ball sailed past the face of the goal.

    Despite their efforts, Pakistan were unable to equalise. The Koreans will play the winners of Thursday's other semi-final between Australia and the Netherlands for gold on Saturday.

          SK coach said he was up till 4 in the morning watching videos of Pak's previous matches in the competition. He especially studied the way Sohail Abbas takes the corners.
          Now, that is committment & professional approach working hand in hand!

          It was a tough match, & no team really dominated though SK had the ball for more time.

          One warning : Pak will face Aussies for bronze. Aussies & Dutch played their semis with great pace. If Aussies maintain the same pace, Pak will face tough challenge.

              Well I congratulate the Korean's and the Dutch. Well played by both.
              But we should also be very very happy for our team, making this far, who knows a bronze medal.
              That's still some accomplishment!
              There is always winners and losers, maybe next time.

                  i am sure the players played their hearts out, and gave it all they had, which is good enough for me.

                  Inshalah we will get the bronze

                        But there were signs of improvement!!
                        Unlike in 1996, we managed to get into the semis this time.

                        The good thing is that we qualified for the Champion's Trophy!!!
