Good news for football starving fans of the country, as they would be getting a chance to see the 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy in Pakistan.
The trophy will arrive in Pakistan on February 3 for a day, the trophy will be put on display at a local hotel.
Despite the ban by FIFA on Pakistan football, the FIFA trophy is touring Pakistan, one of the three countries of South Asia. Maldives and Sri Lanka are the other two countries which are part of the FIFA trophy tour.
However, Pakistan Football Federation will have no role in trophy tour to Pakistan and the event is purely being conducted by the FIFA and sponsors.
Football fans of the country are now looking forward to setting their sights on the fabled World Cup trophy, and it would be a sweet moment for former national skipper Saddam Hussain and midfielder Saadullah. For them, the trophy serves as little more than a stark reminder that while the World Cup may come to Pakistan, Pakistan is not going to the World Cup anytime soon.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played in Russia this summer. A total of 32 teams will contest to become the Football’s world champion.
