In a display of sheer prowess and determination, Pakistan's national hockey team secured a consecutive victory in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup by defeating Korea 4-0 one-sidedly on Sunday in Ipoh, Perak, reported 245NewsHD TV channel.

Led by the stellar efforts of Hanan Shahid, Arshad Liaquat, Ghazanfar Ali, and Sufyan Ali, each contributing a goal, Pakistan dominated the field, leaving their opponents struggling to keep pace. The relentless offensive strategies coupled with a solid defense left no room for Korea to stage a comeback.

Pakistan made an explosive start as Hannan Shahid secured the first goal just three minutes into the game with a powerful field goal, setting the tone for the encounter.

The momentum continued to swing in Pakistan's favour as Arshad Liaqat added to the scoreboard, netting another field goal in the 20th minute of the match.

With a relentless display of skill and determination, Ghazanfar Ali further extended Pakistan's lead with a third field goal in the 27th minute, leaving the Korean defense struggling to keep pace.

As the match progressed into the third quarter, Pakistan's solid defense held firm, denying their opponents any opportunity to close the gap.

The score remained unchanged at the end of the third quarter, with Pakistan maintaining their commanding 3-0 lead.

In the final quarter, Pakistan sealed their victory with a clinical performance, as Sufyan Khan converted a penalty corner into a goal in the 50th minute, putting the match out of Korea's reach.

Remember, Pakistan defeated Malaysia with a last-minute winner by Abu Mahmood on Saturday.

The nine-goal thriller saw some of the best goals as the Green Shirts managed to emerge triumphant 5-4 after a long 60 minutes.

Pakistan’s next match is now against Japan on May 7 at the same venue.
