In Oslo, the Pakistan street child team achieved a big win in the Norway Cup by winning their first knockout game. They are called the Green Shirts and have won four games in a row, including a 4-0 victory against Molde FK in the latest match.
Before this, Pakistan’s team won 2-0 against Skjold IL, 2-1 against Arvoll IL, and an impressive 11-1 victory against Frigg Oslo FK. The Ambassador of Pakistan to Norway, Saadia Altaf Qazi, met with the team and praised their excellent performance in the tournament.
They are playing in the Norway Cup as Muslim Hands FC, representing Pakistan under the banner of Muslim Hands, a charity organization. The Norway Cup has a total of 2,350 teams and around 30,000 players taking part in different competitions.

In previous editions, they were runners-up in Russia in 2018 and secured third place in Brazil in 2014.
