Kabul:

An indication of just how starved Afghans have been for sporting action came from today's historic football match between a select afghan 11 and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). There was a minor stampede outside the stadium in Kabul, which under the Taliban rule had acquired the reputation of a killing field, where executions and amputations were conducted. More than 30,000 people jammed the stadium. The ISAF team won 3-1 and got to hold up the English Premier League trophy, which currently belongs to Manchester United.
