Nepal U19 team have been unfairly handed the worst schedule in the group. While other teams in the have gotten a three day break at some point in the tournament, Nepal will have to play their fourth match in a row with just two days break.
It is evident from Nepal’s drop in performance that they have been hit hard in this competitive group with not enough time given to rest and recover. Nepal started with a spirited and dominating performance against Turkmenistan but were done in by a send off in the 33rd minute which cost them dear.
They were completely outdone in the match against India but escaped with a narrow 1-0 defeat due to the bravery of their goalkeeper and the wastefulness of Indian forwards.
But the last fixture against Uzbekistan was a disaster. Playing their 3rd match in 5 days, Nepal were rampaged by a superior Uzbekistan and a 5-0 mulling ensued.
Playing in their final fixture, Nepal have nothing to lose. Qatar have proven their superiority in the group, leading the charts. With the home advantage, Qatar looks all set to top the group and will easily brush Nepal aside. Nepal would like to go all out and score a point or two over their technically superior opponents.
The match kicks off at 9:30 PM Indian Time (GMT +5:30). To watch Nepal vs Qatar Live Stream, check the following link
