The captain of the mens national team died when he fell from a plane over Kabul and the women are in hiding.


Zaki Anwari fell from a USAF Boeing C-17 and that the death had been confirmed by the General Directorate for Sport.

On Thursday, the former captain of the Afghan women's football team, Khalida Popal, urged players to delete social media, erase public identities and burn their kits for safety's sake now that the country is again under Taliban rule.

Copenhagen-based Popal told Reuters in a video interview on Wednesday that the militants had killed, raped and stoned women in the past, and female footballers were scared of what the future might hold.

He is so young. The fear of not able to play soccer again if he stayed in Kabul leads this young man to die. One of the many sad stories happening in Kabul right now. So sad.
