Team Chimpanze and Komodo Dragon managed to qualify for the enthralling final, where Chimpanze emerged as title winners. Saarang Hote and Farzad Mehboob represented Pakistan as young ambassador and journalist respectively and both were part of Team Gharial. Last year’s football ambassador Yusuf Moazzam was this time picked up as a young coach and being the youngest coach, he coached his team Saiga really well, which managed to reach the quarterfinals and thus he was widely lauded for his efforts. Fahad Khan headed the delegation. Farzad was epic with his writing and communication skills and he covered all the events including the Children World Championship. His article was printed in the local newspaper on Football For Friendship. Saarang also performed to the best of his abilities. His team Gharial was knocked out in the group stage which comprised of an ambassador from Spain, Peru, Moldova, Myanmar and Peru. To the great honour, Saarang Hote was selected to be the flag carrier for Pakistan at the FIFA World Cup 2018 opening ceremony. He will be the first Pakistani to raise Pakistan's flag at such a mega event. Pakistan’s delegation head Fahad Khan was invited as VIP guest in a post of 15 VIPs from 211 countries. He participated in the leaders’ conference, where he made a speech representing Asia. Speaking to the leaders from 211 countries, he said: “F4F is bringing people closer and negating the negatively perpetrated and politically motivated agendas of a few powerful people, who keep the world divided for their own gains and F4F is the first of its kind programme that is bringing the world together and is a true depiction of the fact that people everywhere are the same and want to be loved and live in a peaceful coexistence. “It's a great feat for Pakistan and myself that our young ambassador is getting a chance to raise Pakistan's flag at the FIFA World Cup 2018 opening ceremony. This is a remarkable achievement. The event will be televised live all over the world and it will help us make a global mark and further present our real face to the world, the face of peace, love and mutual coherence and love for sports," he added.
