Nepal need perfect one goal margin win against the mighty India in order to book their place in semi final of SAFF Suzuki Cup 2015. A draw or lose will cerrainly knock Nepal out from the tournament.
India and Sri Lanka both has 3 points each. However, Nepal has zero at remains at the bottom of the three team standing. Nepal lost 1-0 to Sri Lanka in its opening match.
Meanwhile, Nepal hasn’t score a single goal since they beat India in 2013 SAFF Championship in Kathmandu. Anil Gurung and Jumanu Rai had scored for Nepal at that game and after Jumanu’s goal, Nepal hasn’t score any goals in its 11 games.
Speaking to reporters at the sidelines of the training session on Saturday, Nepal coach Patrick Aussems said
that the loss against Sri Lanka with the goal coming in the last minute was disheartening for the players but they are rejuvenated now and can put up a good fight.
â€œWe watched the India – Sri Lanka match, and I have learnt that the team plays a lot in the sidelines and then crosses the balls. If we manage more possession in the middle, we will be able to create problems to them. Our play will be more technical in the middle as they just have two midfielders in the middle to defend, and we will try to create opportunities from here,â€ he said.
