The footballing season for Nepalese fans is far from over. With the AFC Under-16 qualifiers on the way, Nepal will take on Bahrain in its opening group match today. The game will begin at 5 pm in the evening at Dashrath Stadium.
These qualifier games are being played for the 2014 AFC Under-16 Championship. The draw for qualifiers was held on April 26, 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Altogether 48 teams have entered in the qualifiers for the Championship and have been divided into 10 groups of 5 teams and 4 teams. The winners from each group along with the best 5 runners-up among all the groups will make it to the AFC Championship Finals joining host Thailand next year. Being the host, Thailand got a free walk-bye to the finals.
Nepal is placed in a rather tough group where the opponents are strong contenders like Bahrain, Iraq and Turkmenistan. But with all the Group C games being held in Nepal, the Nepalese team will want to make the most out of impressive home support. After facing Bahrain in the opener, Nepal will then face Iraq in its second group match on September 27th. The final group match against Turkmenistan will be played on September 29th. With all this footballing action taking place around us, lets us all raise our voice to support our players. Cheers for Nepal!
