Penalty Corner by Belgium and they fail to convert it. A relif for Pakistan but their game is going poor with every quarter. 

They need to play for pride now as it looks very diffuclt to equalise now. Two goals in this quarter will save them from an embarassing defeat.

Pakistan vs Belgium

The first match on day 14 of the ongoing Hockey World Cup will be played between Belgium and Pakistan at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. 

In the head to head comparison, Belgium won all 3 matches against Pakistan since 2013. In the Hockey World Cup 2018, Belgium stood 2nd in the Pool C thanks to their two wins (South Africa and Canada) and a draw against the hosts India. 

Pakistan, on the other hand, just managed to qualify for crossover thanks to their superior goal difference -5 compared to Malaysia's -9. 

Pakistan, who played some brilliant defensive Hockey against Germany in their first league match, need to come up with new strategy to hold the Belgium to seal a quarterfinal berth.
