Sohail looking to play his part in Asian Games

Pakistan’s top hockey star Sohail Abbas said  that he was looking forward to play his part in the next month’s Asian Games  at Guangzhou, (China).“Pakistan has given me everything and I am looking forward to contribute some thing for the country in the Asian Games,” hockey history’s highest goal-scorer told APP.“I was deeply disappointed with Pakistan’s  7-4 loss to arch-rival India in Commonwealth Games. Indians really played well on that day,” he commented.
He said he was fully aware that national hockey  is going through difficult times but wanted to give his best for Pakistan.
Sohail Abbas, who was included  in  Pakistan’s probables list by Chief Selector Hanif Khan said he was fully fit and looking forward to his job, after  being  dropped from the national team after Pakistan secured worst-ever 12th spot in World Cup in New Delhi.
Sohail Abbas  was not considered for Azlan Shah Cup, Pakistan team’s European trip and this month’s Commonwealth Games in New Delhi where Pakistan team took a poor 6th spot and  was recalled in the camp after 7 months in wilderness.
“I am fully fit and doing training under lights and  have  joined the camp in Lahore on Monday,” he said.
