AFC Cup: Afghanistan hope to beat Bhutan

AFC Cup: Afghanistan hope to beat Bhutan

Mar 23, 2011 - 10:41

NEW DELHI (PANinfo-icon) Afghanistaninfo-icon is optimistic they will beat Bhutan when the two teams face off in their Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup 2012 pre-qualifying match on Wednesday.
Afghanistan is playing their home match in India due to the security situation back in the country.

 “We don’t have good facilities in Afghanistan and that’s why we had our preparation camp in Kazakhstan for this coveted tournament,” said Afghanistan coach, Yosuf Kargar.
“For the last three months, we have been practising. We have players who play for the US and Germany and we hope to put up a good show and qualify for the next round,” Kargar said.
The match is being played at the Tau Devi Lal Stadium in Gurgaon, on the outskirts of the Indian capital, New Delhi.
The second qualifying match, the away, will also be played in India on March 25.
Both teams are hopeful they will successfully go through to the next round.
"We have had good preparation in Thimpu and we are ready for both games,” Bhutan’s Japanese coach, Hiroaki Matsuyama, said.
The winner will then move to the main qualifying round and will take on North Korea, Sri Lanka and Nepal in Group D, scheduled to be held in Nepal, from April 7 to 11.
