World's football legends Kaka, Figo and Puyol to arrive in Pakistan

KARACHI: UEFA Champions League winners Kaka, Luis Figo, Carles Puyol and Nicolas Anelka will be in Pakistan next month for the World Soccer Stars exhibition tour, which was earlier scheduled to be held in April.

The event was earlier postponed due to what organisers cited was “a change in business economy” of the country but they announced on Friday that the football legends will arrive in Karachi on November 9 before playing an exhibition match at the National Hockey Stadium in Lahore the next day.

FIFA World Cup winners Puyol and Kaka, along with Figo and Anelka, visited Pakistan earlier this year as part of promotions for the event.

The match in Lahore will see Pakistan players, shortlisted from a “talent hunt roadshow”, play alongside the legendary footballers.
