FBL-AFGHANISTAN

Afghan footballers from Tofaan Harirod (BLUE/R) and Spinghar Bazan fight for the ball during game of the Roshan Afghan premiere league at the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) stadium in Kabul on August 22, 2013. Afghanistan's second season of domestic league football opened on August 22, with eight sides competing in a tournament boosted by the national team's home win over arch-rival Pakistan this week. The league fixtures are a rare sporting highlight in a country beset for decades by war, poverty and Islamist extremism. Herat thrashed Jalalabad 5-0 in the opening game of the seven-week competition being played in the capital Kabul on a newly-renovated artificial pitch funded by world body FIFA.
