View Full Version : Champions Trophy- Lahore

December 4, 2004, 03:00 PM
Well, hockey's Champions Trophy has started in Lahore, Pakistan and here are the results so far.
Pakistan beat Germany 3-1
Netherlands beat New Zealand 5-2
Spain beat India 4-0

Netherlands are the favorite and Pakistan has a pretty good chance as well. But Pakistan is just lucky Olympic champions Australia chickened out, and Germany is fielding a young said, otherwise there would be no chance for them.

Pakistan beat New Zealand 3-1
Netherlands beat India 5-4
Spain beat Germany 5-2

India, New Zealand and Germany have all losed both their games so far... they pretty much have no chance of making to the final. It comes down to Pakistan vs Spain. Netherlands will make it to the finals and will vs either Pakistan or Spain and will most likely win.

Netherlands will easily win this. After beating India 5-4 their only hurdle they wont lose a game now.

Pakistan beat India 2-1... man this makes 11 wins out of 17 matches this year against them.
Now it all depends on who wins the Pakistan vs Spain match... they will go to the finals. Pakistan might win that match but will get destroyed by the Dutch... again.

Spain 3 Pakistan 0
India 1 NZ 1

Holland v Spain final, India v Pakistan for third spot

India has lost to Pakistan with such regularity this year that even Pakistanis must be getting bored. But one of these days it has to change.

I agree, beating India is hardly an accomplishment anymore for Pakistan... but I think it was a crappy performance by Pakistan and they can't beat any of the Europeans or Australia.

Spain ended up taking the gold... by beating Netherlands...
Pakistan took the bronze and beat India yet again... it's really getting boring man... all they do is beat India... none of the good teams? they think that is good enough?
