Jordan's journey to the Asian Cup Final, where they lost to Qatar 3-1, surprised many football enthusiasts who expected South Korea to advance from the Semi-Finals.

In a historic moment last October, Pakistan defeated Cambodia 1-0 in the 1st round of World Cup qualifiers, progressing to the 2nd round for the first time.

Head coach Stephen Constantine has set his sights on qualifying for the next Asian Cup, leaving the emotionally invested audience pondering why the team can't reach the World Cup itself.

Despite concerns, the pitch appears to be ready for today's match. Surprisingly, the Pakistan Sports Board hosted the 'National Kabaddi Championship' at Jinnah Stadium, Islamabad, just weeks before the crucial World Cup qualifier.
