Jakhrani falls down vs children
ISLAMABAD: Federal Sports Minister Ijaz Jahkhrani fell headlong while playing with children in an exhibition match here, Geo News reported Wednesday.

According to details, a match was played at Sports Complex on Pakistan Day, where children from various clubs took part.

The federal minister who has been a captain of his school football team, participated in a match and was given tough time by the minors.

On one occasion, Jahkrani tripped over and fell on the ground headlong while trying to snag ball from the children.

The federal minister Jakhrani said the playing with the children today has reminded him of his past; however, it is also the part and parcel of the game to fall down.
