Pakistan women’s football team finished second in the Saudi Arabia 4-nation football tournament after an exciting 1-1 draw against the home side in the final match of the competition.

The Women in Green started the tournament with a last-minute thrilling win against Comoros before losing their next match against Mauritius by 2-1. Pakistan, despite a fantastic second-half performance, was unable to get past Saudi Arabia as the match ended in a draw.

The 1-1 draw was enough for Saudi Arabia to win the tournament as they ended the tournament undefeated. Saudi had earlier registered victories against Mauritius and Comoros.

Saudi Arabia started the match on the right note as they tested the Pakistani defense early on in the first half. Saudi scored the opening goal of the match in the 28th minute courtesy AlBandari Mubarak as they took their lead into the half time.

Pakistan struck back in the second half courtesy of a wonder goal by captain Maria Khan in the 65th minute.
