Pakistan slumped to their worst defeat in the tournament when a lowly South Africa stunned the
Asian giants 4-3 in a must-win Pool B match to shatter their semifinal dreams at the hockey World Cup here today. Today's defeat was also Pakistan's first-ever loss at the hands of world number 13 South Africa in the international arena. On the other hand, South Africa not only pocketed full
three points in the tournament but also registered their first World Cup win since they defeated Belgium 5-4 in 2002. Gareth Carr (38th minute), Ian Haley (42nd), Taine Paton (47th) and Marvin Harper (55th) scored for South Africa, while Rehan Butt (5th), Imran Muhammad (68th) and Waseem Ahmed (70+3) were the scorers for Pakistan.
