Eight of the biggest football players arrived for the game in Lahore. Former Brazilian star Ronaldinho told the reporters that he wanted to "provide a good show".
After the first two matches of the trip, he said, "Thank you for all the admiration and treating me so well."
According to reporters, the Leisure league is paying Ronaldinho around $600,00 for the short visit while $300,00-$400,00 to other players.
Lack of government support and poor infrastructure has led to the downfall of Pakistan football.
Now that the game is getting popular again, top footballers have come help inspire the Pakistani youth.
Giggs, who retired in 2014 said that he had heard that the country had ample talent and was home to a strong Manchester United fan-base.
"I will be happy if I inspire the youth, which is my job," he said. (AFP)
