When we first saw this video blogger named Irfan Junejo on Facebook, we were impressed. We kept our eyes on him and he kept impressing us. We knew that this guy will soon be a key influencer on social media but never thought that things will go far beyond our imaginations and that too in next few months. Last week, when Ronaldinho and Friends came to Pakistan, Junejo traveled with them in a private jet from Dubai to Islamabad and then to Karachi. Matlab Bhai Ka ‘Scene’ Behtareen Hogaya!
This last weekend, the history was created for football fans in Pakistan when some of the most famous international names of past including Brazilian legend Ronaldinho, Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs, French players Nicolas Anelka and Robert Pires and Luis Boa Morte from Portugal came for two friendly matches in Karachi and Lahore. Thousands of football lovers gathered to watch their favourite international players in both cities.
We saw many of them going crazy to see a glimpse of their favourite players before they stepped into the field for the play. It was because the Pakistan Army was providing security to the players, hardly anyone risked to ran into the ground for a selfie with international stars. Bilkul ‘Goosebumps’ Type Scene Tha, and there was this lucky guy Irfan Junejo, who traveled in a private jet with those players, Masha Allah.
He also had an opportunity to interview all those players except Ronaldinho because he did not understand English. He interviewed international footballers, we caught him for the same reason at Abdul Sattar Edhi Stadium in Karachi. “When I first saw them at the airport, I knew it I won’t be able to talk to them,” Junejo told us. “I told this to Boa Morte and he advised me not to overdo things and be confident,” he added. The official video blogger for Leisure League’s inaugural season in Pakistan then talked to other players and found all of them very humble.
