Pakistani teenager to conduct toss at Brazil vs Costa Rica match


A 15-year-old Pakistani will conduct the coin-toss for the match between Brazil and Costa Rica on Friday at the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.

Ahmed Raza, who hails from Sialkot, is the son of Shabbir Ahmed, a football-maker whose family has been hand-stitching footballs for the FIFA World Cup for three generations.

Ahmed is an ardent fan of Neymar Jr and the Brazilian football team.

Coca-Cola has collaborated with two-time Academy Award winning film-maker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy to document Ahmed’s journey from Sialkot to the FIFA World Cup stadium.
