FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifiers: Pakistan do well against Jordan

Pakistan will be hoping for a better performance against Jordan during the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifiers today.

In their home match against Jordan last week, after conceding an early goal, Pakistan not only created few chances but also prevented the visitors from scoring more goals.

The final scoreline of the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers second round Group G match at the Jinnah Stadium, Islamabad was 3-0 in favor of the last Asian Cup runners-up. On Tuesday (today), Pakistan will again take on Jordan — this time in the backyard of the Amman International Stadium.

The show will start at midnight. Pakistan reached Oman late on Sunday. And Stephen Constantine’s charges were well-trained on Monday. It will be seen how Pakistan bans Jordan.

The hosts will look to secure more goals if they qualify for the third round as two of the group’s teams advance to the third round. The remaining two teams will participate in the Asian Cup 2027 qualifiers.

Tajikistan (today) will host Saudi Arabia in the same group at the Central Republic Stadium in Dushanbe on Tuesday. The Central Asian side is second in the standings with four points, ahead of Jordan on goal difference and after a 1-0 loss to Saudi Arabia in their away show.

Jordan could finish second in the group if Tajikistan is defeated by Saudi Arabia. In front of the home crowd, Jordan could prove to be very lethal for Pakistan, who have lost all three matches in the group so far.

“We still have one more match against the same opponent and we will be ready to do better when we play in Oman,” Jordan coach Hussain Amuta said in a post-match press conference in Islamabad last week. “

Pakistan will miss Mohammad Fazal

Pakistan will miss Mohammad Fazal and Abdullah Iqbal of Denmark. Fazal is suffering from a hamstring injury and Iqbal is facing suspension. He was shown a second yellow card against Jordan in Islamabad. He received his first yellow card on October 17 in the first round against Cambodia in Islamabad.

England’s Pakistan coach Stephen Constantine was delighted when his charges restricted Jordan to just three goals in Islamabad. “We’re doing better. It’s not easy to build a national team in three to four months, especially when we don’t have a league, but today the boys gave everything,” Stephen said in the post-match press conference.
