Brazillian Football Legend, 37-year-old Ronaldinho, and Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs arrived in Islamabad last week alongside some international footballers from France, Portugal, and Brazil.
The players played an exhibition match in Karachi with Ronaldinho and Ryan Giggs to lead the two teams. The teams also had young emerging Pakistani Footballers who are extremely talented and they, too, got a chance to showcase their talent.
The first game that was played a week ago in Karachi at the Abdul Sattar Edhi National Hockey Stadium was a visual treat with the crowd going wild over the footballers’ impressive skills. Ali Azmat also performed at the exhibition match and sang his popular songs. The two teams were called “Ronaldinho-7 and Ryan Giggs-7” which included Pakistani players who played in Karachi on Saturday and in Lahore on Sunday.
Ronaldinho-7 scored a goal against Ryan Giggs-7 after a penalty and in the third quarter, Saadulah scored another goal, therefore, beating Ryan Giggs-7. Ronaldinho was happy with the event that took place last Saturday and said: ” I am excited at the prospect of playing in Pakistan.” He said that he is on a goodwill mission aimed at encouraging young footballers to play the game.
Everyone certainly enjoyed the match on Saturday and tickets for the match sold like crazy during the days leading up to the event!
