FM Bilawal discusses Lyari's football potential with FIFA president

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari reportedly spoke about Lyari’s potential as a football nation while meeting with the FIFA president Gianni Infantino. In addition, he praised Qatar for hosting the historic 2022 FIFA World Cup.

On Tuesday, Bilawal took a flight to Doha to attend a FIFA World Cup match at the invitation of the Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The foreign minister expressed his gratitude for the invitation to the FIFA World Cup on Twitter, thanking Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, the foreign minister of Qatar.

According to Bilawal, Pakistan is proud of its relationship with Qatar because Qatar’s security forces and labor force have contributed to the achievement of this historic milestone.

Later, the country’s foreign minister paid a visit to the embassy and voiced his satisfaction that the purpose-built facility is “offering outstanding consular services to the people.”

He said that the Pakistani mission in Qatar would keep pushing for increased bilateral commercial and investment collaboration.

He declared that Pakistan was dedicated to improving relations with Qatar.

While attending games at the stadium, Bilawal will also interact with football supporters.

Lyari was brought up by Bilawal during his conversation with the FIFA president because the neighborhood’s residents are clearly passionate about the game. The football enthusiast Lyari is frequently referred to as “mini-Brazil.”

Many young people enroll in football academies in Lyari and train for hours every day regardless of the fact that Pakistan has never made it to the FIFA World Cup. One day, they would like to compete on an international level.

The degree of excitement among Lyari people is so high that it seems as though Lyari is hosting the World Cup rather than Qatar. When Brazil faced Switzerland, thousands of fans flocked to a mini version of Brazil, wearing the traditional green and yellow uniforms of their side and congregating in front of massive televisions while loud music played.

When Brazil defeated Switzerland 1-0 to secure their place in the knockout rounds, the crowd exploded into raucous cheers and dancing.
