(MENAFN- Khaama Press) The Afghanistan national futsal team, making their first appearance in the Asian Nations Cup, played against Bahrain today and emerged victorious with a score of 3-2.

In this match Afghanistan secured four points, tying with Kuwait, Iran's opponent today. Given the draw between Afghanistan and Kuwait in their direct encounter, goal difference became the determining factor for the advancing team, with Afghanistan clinching a spot in the round of sixteen thanks to a better goal difference.
