Kathmandu, June 25

Nepal crashed out of the SAFF Championship after losing their second consecutive game of the tournament against hosts India at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday.

Despite an improved performance compared to the opening game against Kuwait, Nepal struggled to withstand a relentless series of Indian attacks. Goals from Sunil Chhetri and Naorem Mahesh Singh in the second half sealed a comfortable victory for the hosts over Nepal.

Nepal’s ongoing streak against India remains unbroken as they have failed to emerge victorious in their last 11 matches.

With two losses, Nepal are out of the tournament with Pakistan who also lost their second game against Kuwait on Saturday.

The two will play a dead rubber on Tuesday.
