Brazucas made in Pakistan 'ready to be kicked'

With less than a week to go until the football world cup in Brazil, all eyes are on the national teams taking part.

Pakistan may not be one of them, but the country is getting in on the action, by making the footballs due to be used in the matches.

Pakistan used to be the main supplier of footballs around the world for a number of tournaments, including the Fifa World Cup. But for the last 10 years it lost business to China, because of a lack of advanced technology in its factories.

Now, a factory in Pakistan's north-east region of Sialkot is back in the business, making world class footballs.

BBC Urdu's Shumaila Jaffery went to visit the factory.
