The next stop of the trials is Lahore (April 9), while the trials in Karachi will be held on April 20.

A PFF team is supervising the trials with the Pakistan federation coaches helping Rodriguez in scouting the best players.

“Touch Sky Group has been committed in developing grassroots football and has brought the English FA coach to help and inspire young players to continue feeding their passion for football,” read a press release.

After the Rawalpindi leg of trials, Louis Rodriguez stated: “I am so surprised with the number of talented players in just one city.
