Adil Nabi determined to help Pakistan win World Cup Qualifier.

KARACHI -- Talented midfielder Adil Nabi will represent the Pakistan national football team in this year's FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the player confirmed.

Born in Birmingham, Nabi is a British Pakistani who currently plays for Athens Kallithea FC in the second tier of the Greek football league system.

Adil is determined to help Pakistan win the World Cup Qualifier this year - something that the side has never done before.

'In the June window I will not be available but I will be there for the World Cup qualifiers in October to make history and change Pakistan football,' Nabi told on Friday.

'I want to bring the glory to Pakistan via football and make it a huge sport in the country.

'Of course, it will be great to represent Pakistan football national team. My brother [Rahis Nabi] is already representing the country this month. I know everyone in Pakistan is waiting for me. InshaAllah [God willing] the wait will be over soon.'

Adil also revealed the reason behind his unavailability during the upcoming international matches in June, where the Shaheens will play a four-nation cup in Mauritius while also participating in the SAFF Championship in India.

'It [reason behind not being available for the June window] was documentation as I had a busy schedule so it wasn't possible. However, I will be watching everything that happens in the June window. Supporting the guys!' he added.
