Kathmandu, February 25
Australian Gary Phillips has been appointed as the head coach of the Nepali national women’s team.
The national football governing body, All Nepal Football Association, made the announcement on Thursday.
Phillips was recommended by a five-member ANFA technical committee for the position, according to the association. Phillips had been working as ANFA’s technical director.
The position was vacant since December 2019 when incumbent Hari Khadka resigned from his position after a 2-0 loss to India in the final match of the South Asian Games.
Meanwhile, the closed camp training of the women’s national team will also start soon to prepare for SAFF Women’s Championship and the AFC Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers, informs the organisation.
