Pakistan 3-3 Argentina- Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2008

In a battle between two teams who had picked up full points from both their previous encounters, Argentina drew 3-3 with three time champions Pakistan in a keenly fought Sultan Azlan Shah Cup game.

Pakistan, who had beaten Malaysia and New Zealand prior to this game, took the lead in the tenth minute through Mohammad Zubair. Pedro Ibarra equalised for Argentina from a penalty corner five minutes before half time, but Pakistan regained their one goal advantage when Mohammad Saqlain scored from a set piece in the forty forth minute.

The Argentines had better possession of the ball in the second half, and  Ignacio Juan Gilardi made it 2-2 after the referee had given Argentina a penalty stroke. Ricardo Ignacio then stunned the Pakistan fans in the stadium when he made it 3-2 in the fifty sixth minute, but Waqas Akhbar brought the game back on level terms in the sixty third minute.

Argentina and Pakistan both have seven points from three games, but as a result of the South Americans thrashing India 5-1, they lead the table on goal difference.
