Hero Asia Cup: India beat Pakistan 4-0 in Super Four match

High on confidence following an impressive string of performances, an in-form India would look to maintain its unbeaten run when it takes on Pakistan in its third and final Super 4 match of the 10th men's Asia Cup here on Saturday.

But India also won a penalty corner in the 14th minute which was scuffled by drag-flicker Harmanpreet Singh.

In all of Pakistan's three Asia Cup wins, India were the runners-up.

In the Super-4s round, Pakistan lost 3-2 against Malaysia, drew 1-1 against South Korea before the match against India.

In spite of holding the ball much time in the match and receiving more opportunities to score, it is hard for Indian team strikers to break through the Korean defense.

In the last India-Pakistan match, Chinglensana Singh, Ramandeep Singh and Harmanpreet Singh scored for India. The first goal of the match was scored by Satbir Singh.

India will play the final on Sunday at 5:30pm, either against defending champions South Korea or Malaysia who are scheduled to play each other later on Saturday night for the other final berth.

The Asian Football Confederation confirmed on Friday that both home and away matches between North Korea and Malaysia in the 2019 Asian Cup qualifiers will be played at a neutral venue.

India kept the possession well throughout the third quarter and dictated play as cracks began to open up in the defensive line of their arch rivals.

Though their second goal came through in the 59th minute via Ramadan Rosli, India extended their lead in the 60th minute when stalwart Sardar Singh picked up a brilliant assist to get a reverse shot on goal. However, in the Super 4s stage, Pakistan started the match on the attack as they won three penalty corners inside the first quarter but could not convert any as the Indian defence was up to the task. Lalit finished off a brilliant team move with a fierce backhander in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0 in India's favour.
