Lionel Messi, the World Player of the year, led the Argentina team in what is considered to be the biggest ever soccer event in Bangladesh. The stadium was full of enthusiastic fans whose overwhelming reaction was noticed by the media around the world. This prestigious event could take place only due to unforgettable initiatives and promotion by BFF and Beximco Group, the largest private sector conglomerate in Bangladesh.
