England,Pakistan hockey match draw

England’s men were held to a draw by a resolute Pakistan side in their second game of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

It was a tough and attritional affair, with several players sustaining knocks and six cards being issued, as Pakistan really tested Bobby Crutchley’s side in the sweltering heat.

Sam Ward thought he had grabbed a winner for England with his third of the tournament in the 51st minute but Ali Mubashar’s deflected corner three minutes from the end meant Henry Weir’s 100th England and 150th combined appearance ended all square.

That came after Muhammad Irfan Jr. had given his side the lead early in the second half with a superb turn, control and finish before Mark Gleghorne equalised with a penalty corner of his own shortly after.
