The captain of Pakistan’s Women Football team, Hajra Khan, has achieved a hat-trick in Guinness World Records, with the latest one bagged in France.
Hajra recently participated in the Equal Playing Field (ELP) initiative held in France and took part in a five-a-side match which went on for 69-hours; starting on 28th June and ended on 1st July. Around 807 women played in the match, which earned it the world record for most players in a five-a-side match.
The game was played on the sidelines of the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. Hajra scored six goals in the fixture and played for four hours. Later, she took to Twitter to express her joy.

Earlier, Hajra bagged the second Guinness World Record when she participated in a football match that lasted for three and a half hours consecutively where she managed to score 4 goals by herself. Hajra was also featured last year at the Dead Sea for the world record of the lowest altitude matches played in history.
