Pakistan booked their place in the final of Street Child Football World Cup 2018 after edging out Indonesia 5-4 on penalties in their semi-final tie in Russia on Monday.
Earlier, the team had played out a goalless draw with Uzbekistan before defeating their Russian counterparts 3-1 in their pool fixtures.
In the quarter-finals, Pakistan came across Tajikistan, inflicting a comfortable 2-0 defeat to reserve their place in the final four. The final will be held on May 16.
More than 200 street-connected children from across the world have come together in Russia for their own boys and girls international football tournaments — comprising 12 teams in boys and girls category.
The Street Child World Cup uses the power of football to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma faced by street-connected children, inspiring countries, governments and communities to better protect, respect and support street-connected children worldwide.
The Street Child World Cup is held in the host country of FIFA World Cup a month before the main event to highlight the global social issue of childhood vagrancy.
