BHUBANESWAR: The Pakistan team arrived here on Saturday evening for the FIH Odisha Hockey Men's Junior World Cup, becoming the 14th team out of the 16 that will be in the fray in the tournament to reach the city.
Welcoming the Pakistan team to India, Hockey India, in a tweet said, "Wishing you all the best for the FIH Odisha Hockey Men's Junior World Cup 2021 in Bhubaneswar."
In 2016, the Pakistan team was unable to take part in the Junior World Cup held at Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh after being denied visas by the Indian High Commission due to an alleged delay on the part of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) in applying for the travel document.
Pakistan won their lone title in the Junior Men's World Cup in 1979 in Versailles, France. IANS
