GLASGOW, July 28:

The Malaysian men’s hockey squad received an embarrassing 8-1 thrashing at the hands of England in their second group B match at the National Hockey Stadium in Glasgow on Sunday.

Ashley Jackson emerged as England’s hero having scored four goals, in the third, 43rd, 55th and 60th minute.

The remaining four goals were contributed by Adam Dixion in the 49th minute, Mark Gleghorne 64th minute, Phil Roper 67th minute and Alastair Brogdon completed England’s goal fiesta in the 69th minute.

Malaysia’s solitary goal was by Muhammad Shahril Saabah in the 25th minute. In the opening match, Malaysia defeated Canada 2-0.

Assistant coach K.Gobinathan described the result as expected as he admitted the strength of the world number five team.

“This is the most powerful side we have confronted…we really need to buck up the defence. Besides they also have the physical advantage,” he told reporters.

Malaysia are scheduled to meet Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday at 11 am (6 pm Malaysian time) and New Zealand on July 31 for the final group match.

“Enough with oaths; there is no need to involve the wife in such political matters. The oath can be cancelled by paying kifarah (compensation), but it’s too late as it has been solemnised. As such, the oath is deemed valid even though the act is considered illegal from a religious point of view.”
