Pakistan’s ‘Unfancied’ Soccer Triumph


IF national pride has anything to do with it soccer could become the rising sporting phenomena in Pakistan. Fans all over the country are celebrating their unfancied national side’s narrow win in the first ever soccer ‘test’ against India. India started clear favourites in the three match series. They are ranked 125th in the world to Pakistan’s lowly 170th and the visitors fielded a number of professional players compared to Pakistan’s wholly amateur side.
