Kathmandu, November 13
Nepal’s national men’s football team are playing their first match in the past seven months in Dhaka on Friday.
Currently, the team are in the Bangladeshi capital to play two friendlies with the host.
The first match will begin at the Bangabandhu National Stadium at 4:45 pm Nepal standard time today.
Because both of the teams were deprived of playing opportunities due to the Covid-19 pandemic over the months, both sides look excited about the match. Speaking in a pre-match conference on Thursday, both coaches and captains said they would look forward to a positive result.
Many new players have made their place in the Nepali team this time due to the coronavirus infection and other injuries in senior players.
Nepal and Bangladesh have played 19 matches so far, among which Bangladesh won 12 and Nepal 6. One match ended in a draw. In the most recent match, Nepal defeated Bangladesh 2-0 in 2018.
The second match between them has been scheduled for coming Tuesday.
