ISLAMABAD: Pakistan men’s football team on Thursday, succumbed to a 3-0 defeat against Jordan in the FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifiers here at the Jinnah Stadium.

Jordan’s star player Musa Al-Taamari struck twice while Ali Olwan chipped in with a goal during the important match against Pakistan.

The Asian Cup finalists had a flying start to the game as their key player Al-Taamari scored a brace within the first 10 minutes.

It appeared that Jordan would keep on piling the goals against the hosts but Pakistan’s defence displayed character and remained steady to avoid a thrashing.

Notably, it was the straight third defeat of Pakistan in the ongoing second round of the Asian qualifiers.

Pakistan, who are yet to taste a triumph in the second round, remained at the bottom in the Group G of the Asian Qualifiers while Jordan are in third place with four points.

Pakistan will now travel to Jordan for the away fixture on March 26 this month.

It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan now need to win all their remaining three games, which includes two matches against Saudi Arabia and one against Tajikistan, in order to remain in the hunt for the FIFA World Cup.
