It’s do or die against Great Britain: Rehan Butt
Pakistan registered its first win of the London Games by beating Argentina 2-0, thanks to penalty corners either side of halftime.
Mohammad Imran and captain Sohail Abbas scored as Pakistan swept past Argentina at the Riverbank Arena in London.
While the win provided much cause for celebration for Pakistani fans, veteran forward Rehan Butt said his side were already focusing on its next contest.
“We just needed three points,” said Butt.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s with a two goal difference or one goal.
Butt termed Pakistan’s next match against hosts Great Britain as the most crucial in his side’s campaign at the Games.
“Next game we are playing Great Britain. I think for Pakistan and for Great Britain we have the same feelings because there’s a do or die match for the second place.”
The Greenshirts will play against the hosts on Friday (20:00 PST), before taking on South Africa and the rampaging Australian side.
