Pakistan completely dominated hosts Nepal as the greens comfortably moved into the finals of the South Asian Football Federation (Saff) U15 Championship by beating the hosts 4-0 at ANFA Complex on Thursday.

After a goalless first half, Pakistan put the pressure on Nepal and eventually took the lead through an own goal in the 54th minute. Pakistan did not settle for just a one goal lead and kept pressing on.

Their persistence was rewarded when the greens got two penalties in their favour with Mohibullah emerging as the penalty specialist for the country, scoring on in the 59th and 68th minute of the match.

Mudassar Nazar however sealed the all-important win for Pakistan with a header in the 77th minute.

Pakistan had defeated defending champions India 2-1 in their opening match, while they beat Bhutan 4-0 in their second Group B fixture to qualify for the semi-final. Meanwhile, India finished second in the group of three, and lost 4-2 to Bangladesh on penalties after playing 1-1 in full-time in the first semi-final on Thursday.

Pakistan and Bangladesh will now play the final on Saturday, November 3.

Eariler, Brazilian football sensation Ricardo Kaka posted a video wishing the Pakistan under 15 team ‘good luck’. The former AC Milan playmaker’s wish and the team’s hardwork seems to be paying off as the Pakistan side as completely dominated every team in their way.
