Afghanistan and Pakistan meet in friendly

Football match in Kabul was billed as an indication of country's gradual return to normality after decades of war.

    With the relationship between Afghanistan and Pakistan often marked by diplomatic fouls and offsides, it took a football match in the capital Kabul to bring the neighbours together.

    Billed as an indication of the country's gradual return to normalcy after decades of war and violence, the 6,000-seater stadium was sold out and the jubilant crowd cheered at every pass, erupting into a frenzy when the game ended 3-0 to Afghanistan.
