The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) unveiled on Sunday the 24-member team that will compete against Jordan in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifiers on March 21 and 26.

Pakistan is set to host Jordan at Islamabad’s Jinnah Stadium on March 21, aiming to secure a lead before they journey to the Amman International Stadium for the away leg.

The 24-member team, under the leadership of head coach Stephen Constantine, will confront the visitors.

The reintegration of Pakistan’s captain and defensive leader, Easah Suliman, provides a significant boost to the Pakistani side that conceded six goals to Tajikistan in their last home game without him.

Conversely, star forward Otis Khan is expected to miss the match as he is still recuperating from an injury.

Midfielders: Rahis Nabi, Harun Hamid, Alamgir Ghazi, Rajab Ali, Ali Uzair, Shayek Dost, Abdul Samad

Currently at the bottom of the Group G points table after losing their initial two matches against Saudi Arabia and Tajikistan, Pakistan is looking to stage a strong comeback to remain in contention.

Earlier, the head coach conducted a press conference where he conceded that Pakistan lacked the quality to qualify for the World Cup, citing the need for a domestic league to discover local talent.

“Pakistan won’t qualify for the next FIFA World Cup. We won’t find talent if there is no proper domestic league,” he stated while addressing the media on Saturday in Lahore during the ongoing training camp of the Pakistan football team.

“We were supposed to have a camp in January but that didn’t materialise. There were also no friendlies. Unfortunately, we will face one of the best teams in Asia (Jordan) with very little preparation.

“Jordan are a tough team but we will fight and won’t lay down for anybody.”
