ISLAMABAD (APP) - Jordan football coach Hussein Amutah’s on Wednesday said Pakistan would not be an easy team to compete, in the forthcoming FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifier Round 2 matches.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, he said the Jordanian team performed well in the Asia Cup. The confidence of the team has increased from the Asia Cup and we would play the best football. Football is the most popular sport in Jordan but it was not an easy game.

“Every game for Jordan is important. We have prepared well for FIFA qualifier matches against Pakistan,” the Amutah said, who was contented to tour Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Pakistan coach Stephen Constantine said our team also performed well in the Asia Cup. “We are trying with all our might to qualify for the group stage of the World Cup. We are trying to build a new team and players would not learn if they won’t play,” he said.

Constantine said Pakistan was planning to play against different countries.

“Our players lack experience and my focus right now is the Asian qualifiers and the SAFF Cup. I want to see the best football team of Pakistan and it is necessary to hold a football league in the country for better results,” he said.
