The opening match of the Day 8 at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Final saw France battle to a fine draw against Pakistan, but it wasn’t enough for them to leap-frog their opponents in the Pool A standings.

France twice lead the match thanks to Simon Martin Brisac and Charles Masson, but Muhammad Waqas and Muhammad Dilber pulled the Greenshirts level on both occasions, ensuring that Pakistan finished the pool phase in third place and will face the team that finished second in Pool B in the cross-over quarter-finals.

Les Bleues finished fourth in Pool A, and now face the difficult task of beating the team that finishes top of Pool B if they are to reach the semi-finals and maintain hopes of taking one of the three guaranteed tickets to the HWL Final and Rio 2016 Olympics on offer here in Antwerp.

Reflecting on the match, France captain Tom Genestet felt it was a case of what might have been. “I think we didn’t hold the ball good enough during the first half”, said the midfielder. “We are disappointed but we have to stay focussed for the quarter-final match on Wednesday because that is the most important game.”

“France played well but we were quite sloppy, but I think that the whole of the game we had too many chanced that we missed”, said Greenshirts captain Mohammad Imran, who saw a first quarter penalty stroke brilliantly saved by France shot-stopper Martin Zylbermann. "We will learn from our mistakes and plan for the quarter-final.”
