The Pakistani football squad will likely host the Maldives for a friendly game in November, marking their first action in three years. Details indicate that the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) and the Maldives Football Association have been in discussions on the Maldives Football Association’s upcoming visit to Pakistan.
The Maldives football team is ready to travel to Pakistan, according to a top official on the PFF Normalization Committee, but a few logistical problems need to be resolved first.
According to the senior official, the PFF has been aggressively seeking to host any country during the upcoming international window and has heard from the Maldives.
According to the official, Jinnah Stadium in Islamabad was considered the perfect location for an international friendly, but it will not be possible for the stadium to host the event as it is now undergoing reconstruction.
According to him, the PFF’s next-best choice is to set up the Punjab Stadium in Lahore to hold the event. They have already asked the Punjab Sports Board (PSB) for permission to do so. He added that once PFF receives a favorable response from the PSB, they will start making preparations for the international friendlies in November. The Pakistani team’s last match was in June 2019 against Cambodia, a World Cup qualifier that they lost. The Green Shirts will be eager to take the field once more and impress everyone with their skills.
