And there are not even 5 months left. Qatar, a Middle Eastern country, has already completed all the preparations, including the preparation of the field and the unveiling of the mascot.

It is known that Pakistan has made the balls that Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo will play in this World Cup. The ball has been named - 'Al Rihla'.

Sheikh Zohaib Rafiq Sethi, senior vice-president of Pakistan's Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), recently made the announcement. The balls were made in a factory in Sialkot.

Speaking to media, SCCI leader Rafique said the ball made by Pakistan will be officially used in this year's FIFA World Cup. This news will increase the prestige of this city of Pakistan all over the world.

Sheikh Zohaib Rafiq Sethi also spoke about the features of Al Rihla ball.

He said the ball is environmentally friendly. Organic and recycled materials have been used to make this ball. No solvent chemicals were used. Rather, water-based chemicals have been used that will not pollute the environment. The 20-panel ball has already been declared the best in the world.

Rafiq said that the technology of the last World Cup has been used for sewing the ball.
