Nepali football team, which is preparing for the World Cup qualifiers, is competing in a friendly match against Iraq on Saturday. This is the first time that Nepal is playing under the leadership of coach Abdullah.
Competing in Nepal’s first official tournament, Nirajan Rayamajhi’s goal in Baghdad and 4-2 defeat in Almaty.
Adding to this, Nepal is the highest ranked team to compete in international friendly games. Nepal is playing against Iraq, which is ranked 103rd in the FIFA world cup rankings, in Basra on Saturday.
Captain Kiran Chemjong said the game against Iraq was a great opportunity. Nepal has been playing regular friendly matches with Bangladesh, Bhutan and Pakistan. He has also played with Malaysia, Philippines and Chinese Taipei. The two games he played against Kuwait when he returned from prohibitory order are exceptions. Otherwise, Nepal would not have been able to compete in a friendly match against a big team.
