World football's governing body FIFA and the player's union FIFPro are working together to evacuate Afghan male and female footballers who wish to leave the country, FIFA Secretary-General Fatma Samoura told Agence France-Presse (AFP) on Sunday.
"We're in the process of working with FIFPro," Samoura said.
She added the body had "already done it in the past, we should be able to do it again.
"On Friday, FIFPro said on Twitter it had "been liaising with governments to establish an evacuation plan for athletes at risk".
"Central to this rescue effort is the ambition to bring as many people to safety as possible," it added.
On Thursday, the player's body paid tribute to young Afghan national team footballer Zaki Anwari, who reportedly died falling from a U.S. plane last week at Kabul airport.
