Pakistan ended their campaign at this year's Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament with a 2-2 draw against Korea on Saturday.
The draw meant both Pakistan and Korea finish their league engagements with five points each.
Today's game was more about pride than anything else for Pakistan and Korea as both the teams had already crashed out of contention coming into the match.
The Koreans showcased great fighting spirit as they came from a goal down to hold the mighty Pakistanis twice.
Pakistan had the better of exchanges in the initial stages of the match - earning two penalty corners - but on both occasions skipper Muhammad Imran came a cropper.
Salman Hussain then gave Pakistan the lead in the 17th minute, scoring from Haseem Khan's cross from the left flank.
Korea, however, restored the parity just four minutes into the second half through a penalty corner conversion by Hyun Hye Sung.
Pakistan surged ahead again, when Haseem Khan scored a field goal in the 47th minute before an own goal gave Korea the equaliser in the 53rd minute.
Yoon Sung Hoon's reverse hit inside the 'D', found an obliging Pakistan defender Muhammad Irfan, who unerringly deflected the ball in while trying to push it out.
