MOSCOW: 15-year-old Pakistani teenager Ahmed Raza made all his way from Sialkot to Moscow overnight and participated in the ongoing FIFA World Cup with the help of beverage brand Coca Cola.
The boy also conducted the coin toss of the game between Brazil and Costa Rica and met his favourite footballer and child prodigy Neymar Jr.
He is the first Pakistani to be present on the pitch of a FIFA World Cup match. Ahmed Raza belongs to a family in Sialkot, whose older members have been making hand-made footballs for professional leagues.
Coca Cola has assigned Pakistan’s acclaimed filmmaker and two time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy to record the journey of the boy.
