      Look closely enough and you can see the pentagonal patches that make up the ball.

      This is the original ball

      Machine-made footballs took over these men-made (or should I say women-made?) footballs a long time ago when it comes to official match balls
      Sadly, none of the ones made in Sialkot will actually be used in the WC.

      Are you sure about that? Pakistani made footballs were used in practice sessions in the 2010 edition of the tournament.

      In 2012 London Olympics, a Sialkoti company was one of the official suppliers of the ball; whether they were actually used in matches I can't say.

      One thing I'm sure about, however, is that it was a straight fight between Chinese machine-made footballs vs our hand-sewn footballs when it came to 2010 WC. Fifa decided to go ahead with the Chinese ones, and ours ended up as replicas that were sold all over the world.

      I could be wrong, but the fact that pretty much every player criticised the unpredictable trajectory of the balls used in the WC makes me presume that they were the the newly introduced thermally-bonded machine-made footballs.

      Adidas bragging about refining and changing their previous thermal-bonding methods since 2010 - for the new Brazuca - makes me think they will again go for the machine-made ones.

      All things said, I wish Adidas and Nike were more actively giving recognition to our footballs, and giving proper credits to the city of Sialkot.
