Hussain met the two legends on the stage and gifted them the Green jersey. “It will be an honour for me if they accept my gift,” he said.
The Brazilian and Portuguese football legend arrived in Karachi earlier on Thursday, where they were given Ajrak and Sindhi Topi as souvenirs at the Jinnah International Airport.
