During the November FIFA calendar days Uzbekistan national team will play a friendly match against the Kazakhstan national team in Tashkent on November 16 at 18:00 at Pakhtakor stadium.
"Preparing for the Asian Cup, the UFA has recently been searching for strong national teams. Kazakhstan has recently qualified to the C group of UEFA League of Nations. The match between the strongest Central Asian sides, a derby, is undoubtedly a long-awaited one," the UFA said.
in 2020, the Kazakhstan national team abandoned the friendly match with Uzbekistan. At that time, the coach of the Kazakh national team, Michal Bilek, said that he saw no sense for a UEFA side to play against an Asian team.
The last time the national teams of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan faced each other was in 2007 in the Alma-TV Cup in Shymkent, and the match ended 1:1. Uzbekistan played 6 times against Kazakhstan and winning twice, losing once, and with 3 matches ending in a draw.
