Both Kaka and Figo were given a hero’s welcome upon their arrival in Lahore and Karachi ahead of promotional activity in connection with their planned football action.
The football stars, on a day-long visit to the country, formally laid the foundation of World Soccer Stars, aimed at promoting budding talent through exhibition matches and coaching clinics.
Earlier, while speaking to the media after arriving in the port city, Kaka’s counterpart Figo had said that he was “excited to be here”.
“There is a great promise of football in Pakistan so we are here to help develop the game,” he had said.
