ISLAMABAD: After three crushing defeats, Pakistan won their last pool match against Scotland in the World Hockey League (WHL) at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Monday. The green shirts came from behind to win 3-1 in the World Cup Qualifiers. Now, Pakistan's entrance to the quarter finals depends upon the result of the Scotland-Canada match on Tuesday. If Scotland win, they go through because of a better goal difference. In the event of a draw or Scotland's defeat, Pakistan would play the quarter finals.
