This Sialkoti Teenager Was The First Pakistani At The FIFA World Cup Pitch, All Thanks To Coca-Cola

By MangoBaaz Studio | 22 Jun, 2018

Today, 15-year old Ahmed Raza made headlines by making it from Sialkot to Moscow overnight.

Ahmed’s family is involved in crafting hand-stitched footballs for professional leagues, for generations now.


So, finally making it to the biggest football tournament is kinda, sorta, a big deal.

And…it didn’t stop there.


Coca-Cola not only flew the teenager to his dream destination but also had him on the pitch for the Brazil vs Costa Rica today during the coin toss.

Now, that’s a sweet deal.


Ahmed got the opportunity to meet his dream footballer and child prodigy Neymar Jr and got to hang out with the rest of the Brazilian squad which also happens to be his favorite team. 

After releasing Official FIFA World Cup Anthem featuring Qurat-ul-ain Balouch and Jason DeRulo, Coca-Cola continues to play an instrumental role in promoting football in Pakistan even further. This marks the first time a Pakistani will be present on the pitch of a FIFA World Cup Match in an official capacity.


Look at him, all smiles on the pitch:
