He lamented the lack the government support and assistance, and has previously said that he received a lot of moral support and encouragement from national and international coaches during the match.

This was evident by the fact that his arrival was not given consideration, despite the presence at the airport of several politicians including Balochistan Speaker Raheela Durrani, and ministers Hamid Khan Achakzai and Sardar Aslam Bizenjo.

Instead he was given a rousing welcome by several traffic police officials who showered rose petals on him. Later he was taken to his home by a jubiliant  crowd of players.
