Pakistan to Host International Football Match After Eight Years Today

Pakistan’s men’s national football team is set to play against Cambodia in a FIFA World Cup 2026 qualification match today.

This game marks a significant moment for football fans in Pakistan as it’s the first international football match hosted by the country in eight years. The last time Pakistan hosted an international match was against Afghanistan in 2015.

In the opening leg of the first-round qualifier, Pakistan had a goalless draw against Cambodia in Phenom Penh last week. To advance to the second round, Pakistan needs to improve its home record in today’s match.

This homecoming of international football is being celebrated by fans, and the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) encourages supporters to attend the match and show their passion for the sport.

The winning side in this qualifier will progress to the second round, where they will face teams like Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, and Jordan in Group G.

Pakistan’s football scene has faced challenges in recent years, including suspensions of the domestic premier division and issues with the country’s football governing body.

However, this match is seen as a positive step forward for Pakistani football and a chance to demonstrate the nation’s love for the sport.
