Panjab FA will face Padania in the Quarter Final match at the CONIFA World Cup 2018. 
The Panjab side began their campaign in a staggering manner after they beat Kabylia by eight goals to nil. Captain Sandhu, along with Amar Purewal, Gurjit Singh, and Kamaljit Singh all grabbed braces. They then lost to Western Armenia by a solitary goal before drawing against United Koreans in Japan. 
Padania, on the other hand, have been in stunning form. They have won all of their three matches in the competition so far and boast a goal difference of plus fifteen. 
The CONIFA World Cup is a world cup specially established for the people. Instead of representing their countries, the teams represent their heritage. Panjab FA is one such team. Any person who has a lineage linking back to the breadbasket of the subcontinent is eligible to play for the Panjab FA.
Padania have been the champions of the CONIFA European Cup, the last two times. The Northern Italian side won the competition in 2015 and 2017. 
Both the teams will be looking for a spot in the Semifinal as they come face-to-face.
