News Nepal To Play Against Avenir FC, Cameroon Today Behind Closed Doors

The Nepal national team will play against Cameroonian side Avenir FC today at the Dasharath Stadium. The match will be played at 3:00 PM behind closed doors with no spectators allowed.

The two sides also played a friendly on April 29 which ended goalless.

The Nepali team will again feature many new faces after 17 new players were called up after the recent fiasco involving 10 players leaving the closed camp after disagreements with the head coach Abdullah Almutairi.

The national team is currently in closed camp in preparation for the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers. Nepal has been placed in Group A of the qualifiers alongside Jordan, Kuwait, and Indonesia. Nepal's first match is against Jordan on June 8, followed by a match against Kuwait on June 11. On June 14, Nepal will face Indonesia in the final group match.

Kuwait will host all of the matches in Group A. The top placed teams in each group along with the five best runners-up will qualify for the Asian Cup to be held in China next year.

Nepal is also scheduled to play two friendlies against Afghanistan on May 25 and 29.
