LAHORE, July 28 (APP):- Pakistan Hockey Federation will establish a goalkeepers training camp from August 1-11 at the Maulana Abdul Sattar Edhi Hockey Stadium , Karachi with eight keepers attending.
Over the years, with the introduction of rules such as the no offside, rolling substitution, self pass, among others, the game of hockey has become very fast paced and more and more attacks are seen and hence rapid attempts are made on the goal, said a spokesman of PHF here on Thursday.
