Made-in-Pakistan footballs will represent Pakistan's contribution to the world's most-watched sporting event -- the FIFA World Cup.

According to Brazilian Ambassador Alfredo Leoni, there is potential for cooperation between Brazil and Pakistan in terms of football coaching and training -- a transfer of skills that might one day see the Pakistan national team qualify for the world's biggest sporting contest.

Football ("Soccer" in American) is a better sport than Cricket I think. It's about time we took that up. And there is no better teacher than Brazil when it comes to football.

It must be very sad to have to brag about one's country having soccer balls as a matter of pride rather than, say, something new.

It must be very sad to admit one does not know anything about the Football World Cup.. the most watched sporting event in the world.

It must be very sad to admit not knowing what a big deal that is. LOL

We don't play football... just like you.

But we are not as isolated by our own hubris as you are. Unlike you, we do understand that even though we can't show our face in the greatest sporting event on earth, we can contribute in other ways.

You can keep playing your "football" with that "ball" that isn't a ball. LOL

The whole world plays soccer. Nobody gives a toss about your "football". Let's keep it that way.

at $3 a day.... thats nice.

For labor costs, that is very nice indeed.

A dollar goes ten times further here than in US. Rice and school can all be had for Rs300 a day.
