Pakistan and the defending champions, Germany were at clash in the third group 'H' fixture of 2nd Socca World Cup yesterday, where Pakistan did face another fall but not by a huge margin instead with just one goal difference.

It was Pakistan's very own, Muhammad Waheed who undone the Germany's brilliance of 1-0 lead by a glaring mistake from their goalkeeper, landing a perfect shot into their net post in the 22nd minute to equalize the score line on 1-1. 

But after going behind, Germany again dominated the game when N. K├╝hle and D. Reinold added two more goals to make Germany lead the score by 3-1 to which the star stud footballer of Pakistan, Muhammad Waheed, yet again hit another at the 42nd minute to make Pakistan have two goals in their tally till the final whistle blew. 

It was a sobering night for the boys in Green as the team was facing a difficult task as they attempted to overturn the game. Pakistan will now have to face off another tough opponent: Hungary in the last fixture of the International Socca Federation Group Stages, today.
