The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) today confirmed Dushanbe, Tajikistan as the home venue for Afghanistan, ending weeks of speculation regarding the venue for Bangladesh's first match against the war-torn naion in the Joint Qulifiers for the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 Asian Cup.

The continental football's governing body today released venues for the first four matchdays of the qualifiers, and according to the schedule, Bangladesh will play against Afghanistan at either the Republican Central Stadium in Dushanbe, Tajikistan or at another venue in Tajikistan, on September 10.

Earlier, the Afghans wanted Doha, Qatar as their home venue, but since Qatar is in the same Group E as with Bangladesh and Afghanistan, the request was denied by the AFC. 

Bangladesh will play their second match against Qatar at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka on October 10 before playing against India on October 15 at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata.
