MUSCAT: Pakistan began their bid to qualify for a first Olympics in 12 years with a dispiriting 6-1 reverse against Great Britain on Monday.

The three-time Olympic champions have failed to qualify for the last two editions of the Games and their hopes of reaching Paris next year suffered a body blow after being overrun by the British in their Pool โ€˜Aโ€™ opener of the FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifiers.

Shahnaz Sheikhโ€™s men fell behind in the 10th minute at the Oman Hockey Stadium with Jack Waller converting a penalty corner.
