The National Coalition of Afghanistan extends its congratulations to the Afghan national football team on their recent victory over Pakistan’s national team, in a friendly match which was held at the Football Federation Stadium in Kabul.

Afghanistan’s athletes have once again displayed their talents and determination and have made their fellow countrymen proud of their achievements. The friendly match which was held before thousands of Afghans, marked the first time the Afghan national team played against Pakistan in more than 30 years.  The return of international soccer in Afghanistan is yet another sign of how our nation is striving to progress. 

The National Coalition of Afghanistan conveys its best wishes and continued support for the Afghan national football team, and all other Afghan athletic teams, in their future endeavours and competitions. The NCA is supportive of continued cooperation and exchanges between Afghanistan and Pakistan through various sports and cultural programs. We hope that such interactions between both countries will further strengthen our mutual friendship.
