The Afghanistan national under-23 football team also known as (Olympic Team or Afghanistan U-23) represents Afghanistan[1] in international football competition in under-23 international football tournaments and Asian Games.[2]


Football is one of the most popular sports in the country. At present, Afghanistan has a low level of participation in football due to lack of funds and security problems inside the country. The team won Silver in 2010 South Asian Games, the first time Afghanistan reached the final of the tournaments. Balal Arezou of Afghanistan was named one of the most valuable player of the tournament.
