In the first international football match held in Kabul in 10 years, Afghanistan thrashed Pakistan 3-0 on Tuesday in front of a sellout crowd of some 6,000 fans, dpa reported.
The friendly between the two neighbours saw Afghanistan take the lead through striker Sanjar Ahmadi in the 20th minute.
In the second half, forward Harash Atefi and midfielder Marouf Mahmoudi scored the Afghans' second and third goals.
Afghanistan put pressure on Pakistan throughout the match, which was held at the newly-built Afghanistan Football Federation stadium in Kabul.
The last time the two national sides played football against each other was in 1976, when Afghanistan won 1-0, in a match held in Kabul.
"This was a brilliant game," Zohib Islam Amiri, the captain of the Afghan football team, said after the match.
"We really enjoyed the game. It was a beautiful game, played in front of a beautiful crowd. This was one of the best performances after a very long time," he told dpa.
"Come and see. This is Afghanistan. Watch how much Afghans love football and encourage their sportsmen."
War-torn Afghanistan is 139th in the FIFA world rankings, while Pakistan is ranked 167th.
