LONDON (APP) - After the dismal performance in Azlan Shah Cup and test matches in Germany and Belgium, Pakistan hockey team management is still hoping that the team will manage a victory in the 4-nation tournament in Dublin, Ireland from June 11-15. Olympic qualifiers England, Canada and Pakistan, and the hosts Ireland will feature in the tournament, and the presence of two qualifiers has made the task even more difficult for Pakistan to wrap up their European tour on a face-saving note, to start preparations at home for the Beijing Olympics. The main fret of the team management is to re-inject a spirit of consistency in the team, which it lacks, exhibiting a sky-high show in one match and then a nose-dive in the next. Such erratic performance was witnessed in Ipoh's Azlan Shah Cup as well as in some matches of the European tour played in Germany, France, and Belgium. "We are deeply concerned as to why the team cannot maintain consistency in its play. If this factor can be overcome, there's still hope that consistent performance will lead to success in Dublin," said chief coach, former Olympian Khawaja Zakauddin on Monday here, on arrival of the team from Belgium after a two test series loss. The green shirts, who were dubbed favourites in the pre tournament ratings of Azlan Shah Cup, did well in a couple of initial games, but in the following games were a long distant from their earlier performance, to finish at fourth place. In the first part of the European tour they suffered 2-0 defeat at the hands of Germany in the 2 test series. In France they won all the three matches against local teams, which were of less significance. Zaka, despite these losses, has not lost hope and expects a silver line to appear in the deep thick clouds. "I am confident of my team's return to winning ways as we are in the process of rebuilding and gelling new talent with experience, to form a combination capable of a winning performance in the ultimate task in Beijing Olympics." "We are in final stage of finalising our squad for Olympics, and the Dublin tournament will help in this task as we work hard to overcome recent shortcomings with remedial measures," he said. "One thing we have made clear to the boys is that ending on a victory note is essential to help regain confidence, which is only possible when all the players hunger for success and give their one hundred percent," he added. Zaka admitted that the team's performance had been lacklustre, but cited similar situations when a team is on a preparatory tour ahead of a grand tournament. He termed the Dublin tournament a chance to bolster the image of the team and to bring back smiles on their faces. "Obviously it is a very tough tournament as Britain and Canada are two brilliant teams while we should not underestimate the hosts," he said, adding "My team is full of promise, and I believe that despite being under a lot of pressure, the players can, and will do better".
