Shaheen Asmayee faced Jawanan Urdo in a friendly match on Thursday, January 12, 2017. The competition kicked-off in the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) stadium. Shaheen Asmayee routed Jawanan Urdo 2-0.  

Urdo started the game with exchanging short passes to lock the pitch in their own favor. As an enthralling first-half continued, it was Hussain Alizada of Shaheen who netted the opening goal taking a 1-0 lead in the 24th minute. Urdo’s efforts ended resultless as all their attacks were emitted. 

To insure the victory and leave no room for recovery, Shaheen scored the second goal on 64 minutes. This time Zainudin Sharifi, the well-trained striker, put the ball in the back of the net. The friendly ended 2-0 in favor of the 2016 RAPL champions.
