The captain of ICAW FC, Afaq Ahmed, said that representing Pakistan on the international stage is like a dream coming true. He further added:

What else one can do for football than to send a team from Pakistan to an international tournament. We have never been in a football World Cup.

Even though it is not a main football World Cup but for us, it will be of much bigger importance and we are hoping that the nation would be supporting us to claim the title for the country.

The competition will commerce from 23rd September in Lisbon, Portugal.
