The match with the Johor Darul Ta’zim will be held at the Pasar Gudang Stadium in Johar City, Malaysia, on August 26, just 10 days before the Nepali players begin their 2022 FIFA World Cup Preliminary Competition /AFC Asian Cup China 2023 Qualifiers campaign.
“it’s good to get a game as a friendly,” ANFA quotes Nepal’s head coach Johan Kalin in a statement, “We are glad that Darul Ta’ Zim FC is ready to play us. Games are of course important for us as the preparation.”
Nepal are in Group B of the Preliminary Qualifiers Round 2 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Preliminary Competition along with Australia, Jordan, Chinese Taipei, and Kuwait.
Nepal will play Kuwait on September 5 at Jaber Al-Hamad International Stadium, Kuwait.
“ Our players have been working very hard to prepare for this game. We look stronger and stronger as a team. Now we need to play games to know where we stand,” Kalin said.
