Asiad Hockey: India beat Pakistan

Guangzhou: After winning against Pakistan in Delhi Commonwealth games 2010 with score of 7-4, Indian team is high in spirits and registered yet another win against Pakistan in Asiad 2010 at Guangzhou, China. Now Indian team is one step closer to qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics as FIH, highest body in Field Hockey, has decided for the direct place in the Olympics for the Asiad Champion in 2010. India is going to face Malaysia in the semi-finals.

Last time India miserably finished at fifth place and also lost the chance to qualify for the Olympics for the first time in history. India has more Olympic golds in Field Hockey than any other country in the world. Semi final match between India and Malaysia will be televised live on Ten Sports in India from 2:30 PM IST on Tuesday, 23 Novermber 2010.

In another semi final clash Pakistan is going to face former Champions Korea. Lets hope that India win both semi-finals and finals and qualify for the Olympics directly this time around.
