    Pakistan Football Federation releases Constantine despite landmark win over Cambodia


    The Pakistan Football Federation’s (PFF) Normalisation Committee will be releasing coach Stephen Constantine despite the team’s landmark win over Cambodia, which ensured its maiden entry into round two of the FIFA World Cup Qualifying.

     A top official of the committee which was appointed by the sport’s world governing body to run football affairs in the country said Constantine had been brought in on a short-term basis for the away and home matches against Cambodia.

    “He has done a wonderful job but his contract was short-term. He was hired to help us beat Cambodia and end our losing streak, and he has done that,” the official said.

    He said Pakistan would try to again hire Constantine.

    “Yes, definitely, we want him back because he has done a brilliant job with the team but it will depend on his availability and financial terms,” he added.

    He admitted that logistics, financial terms are the main issues for the committee as far as approaching Constantine is concerned.

    Pakistan’s draw and the 1-0 win over Cambodia also ended a losing streak of 13 matches with eight of them played between November 2022 and June 2023.

    Before Constantine’s arrival, the team had only managed to score one goal and conceded 18 in their last eight fixtures

    Pakistan FIFA Ranking is 197.  They hired Constantine just to ensure that it doesnt fall beyond 200.

    Didn't they draw the first match against Cambodia?

    Yes, the first leg was tied 0-0. So it was not a 100 percent win record!
