Will go all out against Pakistan in final: Nobbs

India will display aggressive hockey when they face arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the first edition of the men's hockey Asian Champions Trophy here Sunday.

India, with a blend of experience and youth in the team, have surprised everybody in the tournament and in their last group tie came back from 0-2 to draw the match against Pakistan.

Indian forwards performed well in the tournament and that was reflected in the +7 goal difference that the team enjoys. India's newly-appointed coach Michael Nobbs said his team would play an attacking game in the final against Pakistan.

"This team has handled pressure like pros. They needed an incentive and now the team has got it by playing a final. Whatever the result, we will throw everything into the match," Nobbs said.
