Pakistan faces 3-0 defeat against jordan in FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifiers

Pakistan’s 3-0 loss to Jordan in the second round of the Asian qualifications, which came after the former had dropped three straight games, diminished Shaheens’ chances of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

Pakistan’s Thursday loss against Jordan at the Jinnah Stadium in Islamabad has put them in danger of being eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifiers.

In the encounter against Pakistan, key player for Jordan Musa Al-Taamari scored a brace while Ali Olwan added a goal.

After Musa and Ali handed Jordan a 2-0 lead inside the first ten minutes, it appeared as though the floodgates would open, but Pakistan’s defense held firm and made sure that the Asian Cup finalists were not given a total thrashing.

Jordan has four points and is in third place in Group G of the Asian qualifications. Pakistan, meanwhile, has lost three straight games and remains bottom after picking up no wins.

Pakistan will now go for Jordan on March 26 of this month to play the away game.

To stay in the running for the World Cup, the Shaheens must win their final three games, which include matches against Saudi Arabia and Tajikistan.
