The Jordanian football team Tuesday landed in Islamabad to play the FIA World Cup 2026 qualifier match against Pakistan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

It will be after 18 years that the Jordan football team will play on Pakistani soil.

The team, arriving from Muscat, was warmly received by Dr. Maen Khreasat, the Ambassador of Jordan, alongside embassy staff and officials from the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF).

This visit, a rekindling of athletic ties since their last tour in 2006, has been met with tight security measures, ensuring the team's safe transit from the airport to their hotel.

Anticipation builds as the home match between Pakistan and Jordan is set for March 21 at the Jinnah Football Stadium in Islamabad at 2 PM.

The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) has unveiled the 24-member team that will compete against Jordan.

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.

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.

Jordan is currently third on the table losing one match and drawing the other.

Pakistan’s squad against Jordan:

Goalkeepers: Yousuf Butt, Saqib Hanif, Hassan Ali, Abdul Basit

Defenders: Easah Suliman, Abdullah Iqbal, Mamoon Musa, Haseeb Khan, M Saddam, M Sohail, Omer Rao, Mohammad Fazal, Mohammad Adeel

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

Forwards: FareedUllah, Waleed Khan, Imran Kayani, Adeel Younis
