Pakistan settled for second spot in Group F and thus will play India, which topped Group E for a spot in the last eight.

In two earlier meetings, Pakistan had beaten India, once in 2006 in a Group league and in 2008 in the semi-final.

In other matches, Malaysia struggled against lower- ranked France, eking out a 2-1 victory while second-seeded Canada was pushed by Argentina before registering a 2-1 win over Argentina.
