India-Pak final at Incheon (9/30/2014)
--s2h Team
Defending champions Pakistan entered the Asian Games hockey final defeating fighting Malaysia 5-6 in the penalty shoot out (one-on-one tie-break) after both sided could not score in the regulation time of sixty minutes of the second semifinal.

Obviously the victors, who were expected to have a walkover, had to struggle the way it had been, were in tears, on the floor and seen hugging each other endlessly on the narrow make through.

Its on the other hand is a dream final with two former giants, who were in the same pool, will engage other for the Gold.

In the last edition, Malaysia defeated India in the extra time of the semifinal, and then went down tamely to Pak in the final.

Pak thus made it easy to the last Olympics. Now, after having lost to the traditional rival, India will have to make amends in the final to answer unquenchable Indian supporters.

India Pak last met in the final in 1990 at Beijing, where Pak whitewashed India for the Gold. A final between India-Pak after 24 summers is a welcome treat for the global hockey watchers.
