From Liyari with love. Liyari, a name everyone has heard on tv for one reason or another some may have heard it’s name for it’s gang war related news while others may have heard about the Police operations in Liyari but despite being a ghetto like place there’s one thing that takes Liyari’s miseries away and unite them and its FOOTBALL.
Football in Liyari is so famous that it’s often called the Pakistani Brazil or mini Brazil, and coincidently Brazil has a huge fan following in Liyari too and during World cup times, Brazilian flags can be seen everywhere in Liyari, form being painted on the walls to flying high on the rooftops while flags of other countries like Argentina, Spain, France and Italy can also be seen around town.
