KATHMANDU — Nepal’s national football team will play two friendship matches against Bangladesh on July 15 and 17.
The match is the third friendship match for Nepal this year. Earlier, the Nepali national team had played against Malaysia U-22 and Laos National team. Nepal had drawn both the matches 1-1.
According to a statement released Tuesday by All Nepal Football Association (ANFA), Bangladesh will host both the FIFA ‘A’ friendly matches. The venue, however, is yet to be decided.
In the statement, ANFA said the Nepali national team had been training every day for the last one month for possible friendly matches.
It would engage the national team in as many friendlies as possible to fine tune Nepal’s preparations for the AFC Solidarity Cup, scheduled for November 2-15, the ANFA stated.
