Back on home soil

19/08/13 20:48 CET

Afghanistan’s football fans will be hoping their national team can turn on the style when they take on Pakistan on Tuesday in their first home game for 10 years .

Both nations frequently held sports fixtures in the past, but ties were cut after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, followed by a civil war which began in 1992.

The match will provide both countries with much needed practice ahead of the South Asian Football Federation Championship which kicks off in Nepal on August 31.
