The first goal for Afghanistan was scored by Afghanistan’s Samir Samandari in the 7th minute.


Both teams were head to head in a draw after Uzbekistan scored their first goal in the 38th minute of the first half.

But Afghanistan stayed strong and was more interested in attacking than defending. The repeated attacks turned to another goal in favor of Afghanistan in the 54th minute. 


The Afghan squad continued in this vein and scored their third goal in the 80th minute of the competition.


But this was not the end for the spectators as Uzbekistan scored their second goal in the 82nd minute of the second half.


But victory went to Afghanistan. Afghanistan won its first match against Tajikistan last week and went on to shatter Kyrgyzstan in their second match.


The competition was hosted by Tajikistan, and five teams took part - Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan.
