    ZURICH: Afghanistan will host their first international football match for 10 years when they play Pakistan in a friendly next Tuesday, the game’s governing body FIFA said on Friday.

    The match will take place on an artificial pitch at the AFF (Afghanistan Football Federation) stadium, FIFA said.
    “The fact that we are hosting our first international game in 10 years, and the first against Pakistan in Kabul since 1977, represents a major highlight for football in our country,” AFF secretary general Sayed Aghazada, told FIFA.com.

    “It shows that after a very difficult period we are returning to normality.
    “Afghan football has improved in terms of organisation and infrastructure, and we now believe that football can play an even bigger role in our country. Of course we expect a sell-out crowd.”

    Turkmenistan were the last team to visit Afghanistan for a match, winning 2-0 in 2003.
    Ranked 139th in the world, Afghanistan are unbeaten in three outings this year, having beaten Sri Lanka and Mongolia and drawn with Laos.
    “This is a very symbolic game for the whole football community in south Asia which confirms that our sport can contribute to promote a positive relationship between neighbour countries,” said Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) secretary general Ahmed Yar Khan Lodhi.


    FIFA said that next week would also see the start of the eight-team Afghan Premier League, which will be played for the second time.
    The tournament features teams from the whole country who are selected from a scouting process implemented by the AFF.
    All matches are played in Kabul at the AFF stadium and are televised
    live.

    During the British Time, there used to be some very good players specially from Baloch and Hazara community, who used to pay regularly in Kolkata football league... Kolkata [then called Calcutta] football league was centre for football in the sub continent. Some of the well known names are Taj Mohamed, Moosa, Durani and others...

    Our European players are not playing, nonetheless nothing less than a victory should suffice against low-ranked Pakistan.

    Afghanistan was finalist of the last South Asian Football championship, they played very well in spite to loss to India by some referring decision that went against it...

    Specially your left wing back name I have forgotten a tall Hazara guy with long hairs style played exceptionally well...

    CWG was one of the best games held . Apart from corruption there were no issues regarding security.

    on the other hand pakistan neither have money or security to organise any games nor any player wants to die so early by visiting pakistan:p:p


    still the fact remains


    its shamfull for pakis ., despite 110 nukes,, Pakistan can not provide security to world players
    :p:p

    well dear, half information is recipe for disaster.

    There was no rat but snake and dog foot print was found in one of the apartment,which was kept open by watchman by mistake.mind it, there were 100 of apparent blocks there.

    More over all these happened way before players arrived .

    Same with overhead bridge it fell due to corruption by thakedar. but it was well made in time before players arrived, by our army.

    again this was before games started


    so in the end CWG is one of the best games organised in recent times.

    but the Q still remain why pakistan with 110 nukes can not even organise anything:p:p
