SAUDI ARABIA, Nov 19: Kuwait soccer team will conclude its training in the Saudi city of Dammam as part of its preparations to face Afghanistan tomorrow. This encounter marks the second round of the initial group-stage matches in the joint Asian qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup and the 2027 Asian Cup.

Having arrived in Dammam on Friday, the Kuwait delegation initiated their training on the same day. In response to various absences, Portuguese coach Rui Pinto made the decision to call up Kuwait club striker Ibrahim Kamil. This move was prompted by the suspension of Faisal Zayed, the enrollment of Ahmed Al-Zenki in a military course, and the injury sidelining Salman Al-Awadhi.

With a determination to secure victory and sustain their chances of progressing to the next round of qualifiers, Kuwait is looking to rebound after a narrow defeat to India in the initial round, where they conceded a single goal.
