British Players Propel Pakistan to World Cup Qualification

Harun Hamid, a 19-year-old released by QPR, became a hero in Pakistan with a historic goal, securing their first World Cup qualifying win in five years. Despite not having a pro league, Pakistan now faces Saudi Arabia after defeating Cambodia.

British Pakistani players like Harun, Easah Suliman, and Otis Khan are boosting Pakistan’s football scene, filling gaps due to the lack of a national pro league. The manager, Englishman Stephen Constantine, acknowledges the challenges but sees potential in diaspora players to elevate Pakistan’s football status. The win is seen as a crucial step for the nation, with hopes that more young talents will consider playing for Pakistan in the future. Source: BBC.
