Afghanistan’s U16 National Football Team will face Uzbekistan in their fourth match of the CAFA U16Championship in Tajikistan on Tuesday.
The match will start at 5:30pm Kabul time on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Afghan side defeated the powerful Iran 1-0.
In their match against Iran, a 0-0 draw appeared the most likely outcome after a scoreless opening hour, but Afghanistan’s forward Ahmad Zakaria Hussaini added to his growing reputation by netting the game’s only goal with just four minutes remaining.
Afghanistan’s late rally continues a fine run of form so far in the competition, with the Wahidulah Wahidi-led side still unbeaten after three matches and very much in contention ahead of Thursday’s tournament finale.
Iran, meanwhile, have an immediate chance to atone for their defeat in Tuesday’s blockbuster clash with Tajikistan in Dushanbe.
With Monday night win against Iran, Afghanistan claimed second spot with 7 points after host Tajikistan.
Tajikistan is ahead of Afghanistan due to goal differences.
