Currently, the Nepali Football Team is without a Captain as its regular captain Sagar Thapa and Vice Captain Sandip Rai are suspended by ANFA for their involvement in match fixing. Though the players are released on bail. Their return to the national team is uncertain, therefore it would be wise to choose a new captain for Nepali National Team.
Here are Four players who are capable of wearing the ‘Arm Band’.
1. Kiran Chemjong: Born on March 20, 1990, 25 years old Golie of the National Team can be one of the best option for the Captain post. He has total 25 caps in his name for the national team. He has also captained his club Three Star in the absense of Santosh Sahukhala and leads his club to the title of RedBull National League. Similarly, his place in starting XI of the team is all but sure.
2. Biraj Maharjan: Born on November 18, 1990, 24 years old Defender is one of the most experienced player of the team though he is quite young. He has already won 50 caps for the national team. He is also one of the most reliable player of the Nepali team and is regular in the National Team since 2008. Therefore, he also has capacity to be a captain of the Nepali team as he is one of the experienced player as well.
3. Anil Gurung: Born on 17 September 1986, 29 years old Forward is one of the experienced and oldest player of Nepali Team. He has won total 43 caps for the National team and has scored 9 goals altogether. Similarly, he is thecaptain of his club Manang Marsyangdi Club. He is with the team since 2008. With young players making into the national team, he could be a best choice for coach to pick him as a captain.
4. Rohit Chand: Born on 1 March 1992, 23 years old Defender plus mid feilder has the most knowledge of foreign football as he has spent couple of years in Indonesia and also played in I-League. Younger in age but Chand is capable of leading the team as he is of good calibre. He has won total 38 caps for the national team and is regular in the team since his age of 17.
These player are of our choice but not the final and official. But somehow, if a captain has to be choosen, it will be among these four. Nevertheless, it is not still clear that the Captain Sagar Thapa will be included or not and will be clear after All Nepal Football Adsociation speaks about it.
