Afghanistan does not have a World Cup soccer team of its own, but many countries in the coalition do. And they're preparing to cheer on their home countries in the tournament from Afghanistan, as CNN correspondent Atia Abawi reports. Meanwhile, some British troops in Afghanistan send out a special message to England's team.
