KABUL (SW): Afghanistan is all set to take on Cambodia on June 13 as part of the 2019 Asian Football Championship qualifiers.

The match would be played in Phnom Penh International Olympic Stadium at 15:30 Afghanistan time. Both teams have announced readiness for the game. Otto Pfister, the German coach for the Afghan side, said good performance of the team in recent matches against Maldives, Singapore and Vietnam has lifted its moral.
