10-9 in overtime. Pakistan after three shows are still unable to
succeed in this competition, losing all three games played in
Mexico won in sudden death extra chukker with a golden goal
after 54 seconds by Alejandro Gomez de Parada.
No doubt this game in the afternoon was the most emotional game
so far this World Cup, with two teams so far had not won a match
and therefore both sought to change their luck.

they went ahead 7-6. At the time Mexico began the comeback that
tied the game at nine goals apiece and forcing the sudden death
of the match in overtime.
