Pakistan missed a golden chance to sail into the Hockey World Cup on Saturday, when they lost to South Korea in the final of the Asia Cup. As a result, the national side will now have to fight through the qualification stage to make it to the World Cup.
A number of former hockey stars, including Sohail Abbas, Waseem Ahmed, Zeeshan Ashraf were reintroduced to the side in a bid to strengthen the side and improve its performance. While the move resulted in better showing, it highlighted the fact that the young crop of hockey players have failed to grind out wins.
Do you think the Pakistan Hockey Federation should keep the experienced, out-of-retirement players (Sohail Abbas, Waseem Ahmed) in the side or continue promoting young players in order a build a team for the future?
