Canada thrashed Pakistan 6-0 in a Pool B encounter of the Hero Hockey World League semi-finals being played at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

But Manpreet said India cannot afford to take the opposition lightly as any team can bounce back in a match. "In sport and particularly hockey, when you have the forward momentum, you need to use it as much as possible", former India global Viren Rasquinha says. India now maintain their top spot in the group while Pakistan are still sixth with no points. "We have to stay upbeat, continue to be aggressive and execute our plans to 100 per cent in all the areas to excel against The Netherlands who also have had a good start to the tournament", said coach Roelant Oltmans.

India decimated Pakistan 7-1 to continue their winning streak in the league.

He scored his second and third goals of the tournament off penalty corners.

Pakistan did not look the team that lost 7-1 in the end as they were the attackers in most of the first quarter.

The India vs Pakistan hockey match, played on June 18, has become one of the most historic matches in the history of the game.

The fourth quarter dented Pakistan's hopes further with Akashdeep pumping another goal into Pakistan's goal post in the 47th minute taking India's lead to a winning 5-0.

Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also took to social media to express his feelings over the crushing defeat of India at the hands of Pakistan.

Talwinder doubled India's lead soon after combining well with Satbir Singh and SV Sunil.

After Chinglensana Singh was brilliantly denied by Pakistan goalkeeper Amjad Ali, Akashdeep scored a brilliant field goal from the top of the circle after fine one-two with Sardar Singh. Even Pakistan's 82-55 win-loss record in head of head clashes against India may not be enough to boost their morale after the two heavy defeats they have suffered in the past three days. Nonetheless both our Cricket and Hockey teams will be putting on the National colors and hopefully, the Indians will triumph over arch-rivals Pakistan, in England and give the fans two significant reasons to finish Sunday on a great high.
