Shaheen Asmayee looking to defend their championship

6 Jul, 2015

After an exciting round of regional tournaments across eight regional zones of Afghanistan to select top 26 players for each eight teams of RAPL, it is time for inter-squad matches to  finalize the 21-man squad for each team. It is the final test for the 26 players who have already been selected for the eight RAPL teams during the regional tournaments.

Shaheen Asmayee is the defending champions of RAPL and perhaps the strongest of the eight RAPL teams. Although, it represents only Kabul, it is the dream of football players from across the country to play for this team. Last week, the 2015 21-man squad for the team was announced through Green Field on TOLOTV and it was definitely an exciting moment for the 26 players to find out if their names are on the final list. 

For players who will get to play for any of the eight teams, this could  be nothing short of a life-changing event. RAPL puts the spotlight on the players and that means more exposure and more opportunities for emerging football talents to excel in their personal and professional lives.

This year, Afghanistan National Football team's coach and his assistant have already announced their commitment to evaluate players in the RAPL main event matches and invite the promising players to the national team.
