In their final game of the SAFF Women’s Championship 2022 on Tuesday, the Pakistan women’s team beat the Maldives 7-0. This was their first international win in eight long years.

What was supposed to be a pleasant first press conference turned bad when a reporter asked the head coach, Adeel Rizki, about the Pakistani women playing in shorts.

Since this was the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the reporter asked, “Why are the players wearing shorts when they could have worn leggings?”

Adeel said in response to the question that it’s important to get better at sports, so it’s up to the player to decide what to wear and the management has no rules about the uniform. He said that some athletes prefer to play in shorts and others in leggings. He said, “We don’t have any control over that.”

The video of the press conference quickly went viral on social media as football fans all over the country criticized the reporter for his negative comments.
