ISLAMABAD – Federal Minister Asad Umar was all praise for Argentine star footballer Lionel Messi as he won his first trophy with his national team over hosts Brazil in the Copa America final.
Former Finance Minister termed 34-year-old as ‘the greatest footballer of his generation over the sumptuous win of Argentina in the Copa America Final.
“The greatest footballer of his generation and one of the greatest of all times, finally has silverware for his country. This puts the ultimate seal of his greatness”, the PTI Minister wrote on his official Twitter.
