Despite turmoil at home, Pakistan football team is all set to break its 29-year winless drought when it takes on Cambodia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers two-legged first round to be held on home and away basis.

In the first leg the two low-ranked sides come across at Phnom Penh Olympic Stadium, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on June 6.
