Pakistan Women Football team captain Hajra Khan has received her third Guinness World Record.

It was last year in  June when Hajra participated in the Equal Playing Field (EPF) initiative held in France and took part in a five-a-side match which continued on for 69-hours; beginning on 28th June and ended on 1st July. 

Around 807 women footballers participated in the match and having played in the world’s longest football match, the players earned the world record for most players in a five-a-side match.

Hajra Khan scored six goals in the fixture and played for four hours in the game that was played on the sidelines of the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

Sharing her joy to the world, Hajra Khan wrote in a Twitter post, “IT’S HERE! My third @GWR just in time! Record for the longest football match played for 69 hours in Lyon, France. Will fight until the playing field is EQUAL! This is why I do it!”.


This is not the first record of our young hero! Hajra bagged her second Guinness World Record for participating in a football match that lasted for three and a half hours consecutively and she also scored 4 goals by herself. 

Her first was for featuring at the Dead Sea for the world record of the lowest altitude matches played in history.
