Kathmandu, November 5
The national men’s football team of Nepal have left for Bangladesh to play two friendly matches with the hosts.
The team comprising 25 players and 11 officials boarded a Himalayan Airlines flight at the Tribhuvan International Airport this morning. The team will play two friendly matches with the Bangladesh national men’s team on November 13 and 17.
The team left early because they are required to stay in hotel quarantine in Dhaka for one week before they will get tested for coronavirus.
The players have been already tested for the virus here also and only those testing negative have been included.
Because a few senior players contracted Covid-19, the juniors have a strong presence in the team this time.
