Men's Setanta Sports: Pakistan v GB

Pakistan went one better in terms of comebacks of goal deficits today as they gave themselves a three goal disadvantage by half-time before pulling out an improbable turnaround.

Great Britain prouduced a polished first half performance against the free-running Pakistanis with Richie Mantell zipping in a drag-flick, followed up by goals from Richard Alexander and Ashley Jackson for a 3-0 lead.

But, as in their match against Ireland, Pakistan delighted the crowd with goals from Haider Abbas, Muhammad Saqlain and Muhammad Zubair to draw 3-3.

It leaves the Asian side topping the group on four points, one clear of Canada who play later against Ireland while Great Britain have just a point.

Once again, the Pakistan crowd were immense and created a real atmosphere at the game, adding to the tournament as a whole.
