Though I understand the recent frustration on his visit due to the events in Balochistan, micheal Owen visiting and promoting football in Pakistan is huge, the biggest sport in the world, audience and financially, wish Pakistan focuses on football than cricket. Big bucks to be made and it’s so much better than cricket politics.
Target is for Pakistan to qualify for the 2030 world cup. Just imagine finally putting the ball that has been made in Pakistan for decades in the back of the net with the world watching. It will be just mega PR.
For sure when it comes to sport, Pakistan has a higher ceiling than India, genetically stronger and more flair and can make this happen very rapidly.
