It shows their great love, passion and commitment towards men and women's football development. Football is flourishing fast in Saudi Arabia and the recent football activities especially the involvement of football legends including Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo in Saudi football is proof that how serious they are for the promotion of football and their football future seems quite bright,” Haroon added.

He also thanked Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, IPC Minister Ehsan ur Rehman Mazari, Shaza Fatima Khawaja and other government officials for their appreciation and support for the national women football team and it is their support and patronage that can help Pakistan football start flourishing from the Ashes and earn a due recognition and respect it deserves at international level.
