  • Preety much the same selection of the team as we hab already seen them playing…is there some new faces to see??
    okey i hope the team does well this time….any recent warmup match with foreign team before they leave or they just going to meet them in the tournament anyway wht abt jagat tamata can some body tell me who is he?? and why team dont hab a foreign coach like other countries hab..

    • He is the best coach ever produce by nepal. we should give our people chance. Why should you people understand that these international people come here for limited period and go. What this will effect on our player. New coach new method of playing and back to zero again. so please keep hope in our nepalese coach he will take time but we can see the positive result in future.

      I play under him as he was our coach. in under-17, in under-19, senior selection and countless domestic tournment. i know his ability and i have no doubt that he will be better and succesful coach of nepal for long time. he put his life in this game and will develop this game as much as he can.

      my great wishes with you sir jagat tamata.  when you come to ireland then i will come to see you.
      best of luck for coming game. hope god help you to achive what you born for.
