ISLAMABAD - Helped by a brace from Kashif Mehran Football Club thrashed Quaid-i-Azam FC 4-0 in the semifinal of the MIFA Football Challenge Cup on Friday. The match started at a very fast pace and it was expected that a strong Mehran FC will easily dispose off their relatively weak opponent, but resilient Quaid Fc had other ideas. Their defense was up to the task and denied Mehran FC from scoring in the first half. Kashif scored the first goal of the match in the 47th minute. Then it was Ali Naqvi’s turn to add the second in the 50th minute. Safi scored the third goal in the 56th minute before Kashif completed the score line with his second and team’s fourth goal in the 66th minute. The final will be played today (Saturday) between Al-Faisal FC and Mehran FC.–Staff Reporter
