KARACHI: International striker Mohamad Tahir hit a double to put Chaman’s Muslim Trading Company in the semi-finals when they defeated Pakistan Steel 2-0 in the second quarter-final of the First Naya Nazimabad Quaid-e-Azam Departmental Football tournament here at the KMC Stadium on Sunday.

He said the team found rhythm and played some good football in the second half. He was confident that his side would continue to impress. Muslim Trading Company will now face in the semi-finals the winners of the quarter-final between Karachi Port Trust (KPT) and Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) which will be played on Tuesday (tomorrow).
