Canada thrash Pakistan at Hockey World League semi-final

India equaled their best ever performance against Pakistan in global hockey with a 7-1 victory in the Hockey World League Semi-finals on Sunday - a result that highlighted the gulf that now exists between the two rivals.

The performance of India's forward-line has been outstanding with the likes of Ramandeep Singh, Akashdeep Singh and Talwinder Singh showcasing their brilliance with the stick by scoring some fantastic goals.

Having won all of their previous three matches, India now not only comfortably sits on top of Pool B but has also qualified for the quarter-finals.

India may well have suffered a 180-rout at the hands of Pakistan in the Champions Trophy cricket final but they came out on tops on the other side of London - in field hockey.

Any sporting match between India and Pakistan is fraught with tension and there are a lot of political undercurrents to it.

Indian players continued to dominate the game in the second half as well and Harmanpreet scored his second goal in the 33rd minute. It was tactical brilliance by Mandeep Singh who passed to Satbir Singh from the top of the circle who then flicked it to Sunil who nicked it to Talwinder who deflected the ball into the post - all in rapid pace leaving Pakistani defenders dumbstruck.

India secured another penalty corner four minutes into the second quarter but Harmanpreet's flick was saved by Amjad Ali in front of Pakistan goal.
