LAHORE - Pakistan hockey team, currently touring Europe for Beijing Olympics preparation, drew 1-1 against Rot-Weis Kln in a well-fought encounter at RW Koln ground here Monday. RW Koln, who had beefed up their lineup with six Olympia bound German hockey team players including their captain Timo Wess, put up stiff resistance and kept Pakistani forwards most of the time at bay. Conversely, Pakistani forwards were guilty of squandering away gilt-edged chances which certainly would have given them their first win on the tour. Centre half Muhammad Saqlain found the German defence napping from a free pass at top of the circle in the 6th minute of the first half as his flying shot found top of the net. Pakistan continued to dominate thereafter but failed to consolidate their slim lead. Hence, Germans countered and earned two penalty corners in a row and on the second succeeded in neutralising the lead through Phillip Shutller's unstoppable drag flick in the 27th minute. Both teams were tied 1-1 at half time. The second half remained goalless despite Muhammad Zubair's fierce shot had sounded the boards in the 44th minute but for inexplicable reasons the umpire ruled out the goal. "It was a clear-cut goal," chief coach Zakauddin remarked after the match, "I wonder why the local umpire disallowed that goal. However, I am satisfied with team's performance since we are preparing for the Olympics so we are having real tough matches here." Pakistan got the only penalty corner of the match in the 65th minute while the Germans had five. Pakistan team will leave for France tomorrow (Wednesday) to play a number of matches before arriving in Belgium on 4th June.
