Afghanistan gears up for 2026 World Cup qualification clash against Kuwait

In a move towards securing a spot in the 2026 World Cup and 2027 Asian Nations Cup, the Afghanistan national football team is set to face Kuwait on Tuesday, Nov. 21.

The upcoming match marks the second in the qualifying stage, promising an intense showdown between the two nations.

Over the last two days, Afghanistan’s national team diligently honed their skills during two rigorous training sessions in Saudi Arabia, ensuring they are well-prepared for the upcoming challenge.

The Afghan squad initiated their training in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, with a practice game on Saturday night, followed by a second session held last night. The team is determined to rebound from their initial setback in the competition, having suffered an 8-1 defeat to Qatar in their first match.

As anticipation builds for the clash against Kuwait, Afghanistan remains focused on turning the tide and making strides towards World Cup qualification.
