Kuwait's national soccer team gears up for the Asian soccer finals by hosting Italy's Inter Milan team. Lebanon will host the fifteen-day event, which will kick off on the 12th of October.
Kuwait's Soccer Federation president Sheikh Ahmad Fahd pledged at a press conference in Beirut last week to ensure that his national team is qualified to the finals.
Kuwaiti officials have arranged for a number of friendly matches, focusing on European soccer schools. The Gulf country will host England's Chelsea soon after Milan.
The federation also seeks to go for a higher level, through playing against Holland and Switzerland's national teams.
Milan's coach Zakarouni will bring with him the team's key stars, including Ukrainian Andre Chefchinco, German Oliver Birhof, Brazilian Lionardo, Italian Paolo Maldini, Costcorta, Albertini and the gifted keeper Abiati - Albawaba.com
