外文标题：Asian Games hockey: Misfiring India lose 1-2 to Pakistan
INCHEON: India wasted chances galore in their 1-2 defeat against arch-rivals and defending champions Pakistan in a keenly-contested Pool B match of the men's hockey competition at the 17th Asian Games, here on Thursday.
The win today virtually assured Pakistan's top position in Pool B, while India made life difficult for themselves and at best now can only finish second in the pool and face mighty South Korea in the semi-final.
But for that to happen India will have to overcome lower-ranked but dangerous China in their last pool match on Saturday.
Are Indian players good performers in any sports or just big time talkers and they are wasting public money foolishly?

Pakistan and India would both improve if the play bilateral hockey frequently at all levels, National, 2nd string, club level. That is the only way to keep up with Korea, and the Europeans.
Let's stick with cricket and feel good about it. Fact is India is terrible in sports. We can kiss next Olympics good bye unless FIH again sends us France to beat to qualify for next Olympics.---- Look at India's medal tally- 1 Gold, Communist China 72 Golds. Even small Muslim nation of Kazakhstan has 8 Golds. Let's be happy with Mars mission only, we are terrible in sports.
