On the other hand, Pakistan despite their 1-5 drubbing at the hands of Netherlands managed to book a berth in the knock-out stages. While Umar Bhutta scored the only goal for Pakistan, Brinkman, Verga, De Voogd, Croon and Van der Weerden each contributed one goal for Netherlands to rout their opponent 5-1. Pakistan qualified for the next stage due to their better goal difference than Malaysia.
