PAKISTAN: The Best Football Manufacturer
Pakistani manufactured sports goods are very famous all around the world. Pakistan also manufactures the best quality footballs. Pakistani-made footballs are used in all major football tournaments and in all the top leagues. Recently, Pakistan-made football was launched which will be used in November in FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Last Saturday Real Madrid defeated Liverpool to become the UCL Champions for the record 14th time in the tournament’s history, yet again, the football used in the final was made in Pakistan.
The final was played between the Spanish giants Real Madrid and the mighty reds of England Liverpool in Paris. Everyone knows that a Spanish and an English side met for the UCL final in France, but there are very few who know that the ball used in the much-awaited final was made in Pakistan, indeed a pride for the whole Pakistani nation.
Billions of viewers watched the UCL final on Saturday night. It was a repeat of the 2018 UCL final when these two teams met in the final four years ago. It was a chance for Mohammad Salah and his team to take revenge on the Spanish side. The final was very intense and interesting. For most of the time, Liverpool dominated the game, but the man between the sticks for Real Madrid, Thibaut Courtois, stood up like a wall and didn’t allow the ball to go past him. The Belgian goalkeeper was later awarded as player of the final for his brilliant performance.
Overall, the match was high on pace, open, and attacking. Liverpool had their opportunities, but Real Madrid’s back four and goalkeeper dealt with Liverpool’s attacks to keep a clean sheet. In the 59th minute, finally, the deadlock broke when the young Brazilian talent Vini Jr. guided the Pakistan-manufactured football into the net from a lovely cross by Federico Valverde. This was the only goal in the whole match. Before that in the last minutes of the first half, the Real Madrid captain Karim Benzema netted the ball into the goal which was ruled out for offside by VAR. though the only goal in the 59th minute proved enough for the Spanish giants to lift the trophy for the record 14th time.
Pakistan and Football
Pakistan is one of the lowest-ranked teams in FIFA rankings. Still, Pakistan as a country has a deep and strong relationship with the most famous sport. Pakistan manufactures the best footballs in the world. It’s interesting Pakistan has never been famous as a football-playing nation. But football itself as a sport is incomplete without the contribution of Pakistan. Pakistan not only helps the best footballers kick a high-quality football but also through this Pakistan’s image gets better globally.
