India stun Pakistan 3-1, reach final of four-nation hockey

Johor Bahru (Malaysia):

Indian colts' habit of faltering at the final hurdle continued as they allowed arch-rivals Pakistan two late goals to concede a 2-3 defeat in the final of the Genting four-nation Under-21 hockey tournament here on Sunday.

In a high-voltage encounter at the Taman Daya Stadium here, Pakistan skipper Haseem Abdul Khan fired home the golden goal in the 73rd minute - three minutes into extra time, much to the disappointment of Indian fans.
