Our studio analysts were correct. Pakistan has taken the field in a 5-4-1 alignment. The following players took the field: Muhammad - Rokri, Niaz, Husnan, Muhammad, Muhammad - Munir, Noor, Aziz, Ali - Niazi.

Hold your ground, Pakistan! Hold your ground! A day may come when formidable pressing fails, an hour of desperate goals and shattered shin guards, but it is not this day! After a fine move down the middle A. El-Usman nearly put the home side one up with 9 minutes played. His final touch escaped him though and the keeper smothered the ball. Pakistan's ability to press all over the field paid off frequently. Misr made a bid to take the lead as a ball coming in on the right hand side left Z. Issa completely alone with keeper H. Muhammad, who made a spectacular block. After a fine move down the middle A. Fadl nearly put the home side one up with 33 minutes played. His final touch escaped him though and the keeper smothered the ball. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Misr would have 63 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 72 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from A. Al-Jaber, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. Maybe R. Munir should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 75 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. With 78 minutes played, M. Turk could have brought this one home for Misr as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. Misr were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

Most important Misr player was A. Ahmed. Good thing A. Harawi isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. H. Muhammad performed admirably for Pakistan. Good thing M. Niazi isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 1 - 0.
