Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan won a match but suffered two defeats in its maiden overseas debut in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), after being affiliated to the Asian Rugby Football Union (ARFU) LAST November.
Afghanistan played three matches against the emerging UAE Shaheen team last week in Dubai. Shaheen entered the field, knowing they have an advantage with more experience in rugby compared to Afghanistan. The UAE team thrashed Afghan side 0-12 points in the opening match but Afghanistan managed to claw back in the second game, whipping Shaheen 24 -0. But in the final match, Afghanistan players failed to keep the momentum and only scored five points and allowed Shaheen to score 10 points–thus losing the crucial decider.”
Currently we have most qualities required for this game but the only thing that we are lacking is experience and technical knowledge,” Mohammad Mansoor, Chairman of Afghanistan Rugby Federation (ARF) said in a statement.
Rugby suits the Afghan people because it is a tough, physical and athletic sport which depends on good teamwork, strength and passion,” he added.
Meanwhile, ARF, technical director, Abdul Khalid Bike, said the matches in Dubai had given Afghan players international exposure and widen their understanding of the game better, which would in shaping the team in the future.
