Player Imports – Football to get an uplift

When it entered the motor-sports for the first time, Pakistan had to import Nur Ali from the US, to drive for its A1GP team.

And now, when Football is being given a chance by formation of a national Super Football League, officials from Pakistan Football Federation are hunting for players in Northern England.


Trials were conducted at the Rotherham United where more than 130 British Pakistani players showed up. Out of them, eight players were selected to be trained at Pakistan National Football Academy in Lahore.

With the current Super Football League teams consisting of non-professional players from different Government Departments and the Armed Forces, addition of talented young players who have tasted a bit of professional football in Britain will add to the fervour and strength of the gmae in Pakistan.

Let’s hope these guys do wonders for Pakistan Football
