Football in pakistan

Pakistan is a country with massive potential in almost every department.  The people here are so talented and want to make it to the next level. The connection of Pakistan’s people with different sports is remarkable.
First, we should talk about football as it is one of the most played sport in the world. People support this sport in every manner whether it is locally or internationally. They go to different countries almost pass a continent to support their country and their players. This enthusiasm and energy enlighten what football is to people. They may have differences but become one in this field. Their passion makes them stronger and this bond is what we want in Pakistan as well.
Now we talk about one of the rising sports in Pakistan which is football. People do follow the game and are highly interested in leagues such as the Barclays Premier League, La Liga and the Serie A. Also, the craze of UEFA Champions league is remarkable. The competition enlightens the love for football among Pakistani people and of course who does not watch FIFA. FIFA has a special place in any football loving person in the world as well as for Pakistani people 
There is a lot of hatred against Pakistan that they are not capable towards this sport which is a cause of their downwards but let me tell you one thing that if Pakistan tries then it can. At this time we are now facing some difficulty in resources as well as some nonseriousness but that will be over soon 
However, when it comes to playing football and making it to the international level, Pakistan lacks those facilities and that system which is being implemented in successful or growing football playing nations. The fans of the beautiful game are many, but when these fans want to flourish in this field, the opportunities are less. These opportunities are to be made by the government.
Major steps are taken for the development in this field. Players are promoted and encouraged in many different small competitions whether it is on school level or college or even in graduation level. Small football fields are also being constructed for their playing.
 The Street Child Football tournament was indeed a major step towards positivity in the football field. Through Street Child Football tournament, Pakistan announced itself on the global stage. This was basically a reply to all those who think Pakistan cannot advance or create some history in the field of football. In spite of this, a lot of work is still required to be done. 
Recently a major step was taken as some of the famous footballers were asked to come to Pakistan to show our players what it takes to get to the big leagues and show the world that Pakistan is a country having a safe and healthy environment for any sport. One of the famous names were Ronaldinho as you all know him from Brazil. One of the best countries having football records. He played here and attracted a lot of attention all over the world. He gave a beautiful message to the world regarding Pakistan’s potential.
Pakistan needs to develop its infrastructure better, this talented and overwhelming nation can do miracles with only a glimpse of hope, they just have to believe in themselves. Providing our football players with grounds and practice area would surely be a great step towards development. Time and money are required as talent here exist in bulk quantity.
Further, people with power and authorities should introduce football in schools and colleges in order to motivate this raw talent. In developed football playing nations, the first step occurs at the school stage where the sport is highly encouraged and opportunities are provided. More tournaments and football events by schools and colleges would undeniably be a major stake in making Pakistan a football playing nation.
The concept of football institutions where they can learn football professionally which would be very encouraging as a matter of fact for the players. This can also help to a great extent. Interested and passionate people will have a chance to explore their potential. Such a system will gradually lead to the introduction of the league system which will open the doors for the generation to come.
In Pakistan talent of football does exist, however, a lot of hard work, commitment and investment are required to polish and nature this raw talent.We should request our government to take a serious interest in this matter and encourage the players. This is a serious note and Pakistan can become great too and if this works like this then one day Pakistan can also compete in big competitions and leagues and have a name for themselves. This will be beneficial for every aspect of the country.
