The dream to watch a FIFA World Cup match live has come true for Mobin Khan and his 12-year-old son, Hayaan Khan.

They were selected to be a part of the “Football for Friend­ship Programme” and watch the first FIFA World Cup match between Russia and Saudi Arabia at the Luzh­niki Stadium in Moscow, Russia. The FIFA World Cup is from June 14 to July 15.

“I feel very happy but actually this is because of my son, he was chosen to be a part of this pro­gramne. We are very happy and excited also this is a good time for us to travel and have some father and son time,” Khan said.

Hayaan is a Ba Under-12 representative. He aspires to be a professional football player and represent Fiji in the future.

“Last year he won the ‘I am skilled competition’, which was organised by Vodafone,” Khan said.

Hayaan, thrilled about the win, said: “I am feeling very excited and on cloud nine right now.”

The father-son duo will leave the country on June 7. They return on June 15.
