After Pakistan's Kamran Ashraf had taken advantage of slack defensive play to put his side two goals ahead and England had wasted five penalty corners, England's second-half prospects were looking bleak.
Two penalty corner conversions from Calum Giles within eight minutes put Britain on terms and a follow-up by Jason Lee at another corner gave them the lead. Pakistan now threw everything forward, winning a number of penalty corners and Danish Kaleem finally beat David Luckes. A penalty stroke five minutes from time was neatly placed in by Russell Garcia for the winning goal.
