17/03/2015, Kathmandu, Dasarath Rangasala Stadium, 1st round of Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifications (or maybe pre-qualifications).
This was very beginning of a road to Moscow 2018 and surprisingly one of the most exciting matches I have been to for a long time. After 2:0 result for India in a first leg Nepal had to score at least 2 goals in order to be able to stay in qualifications for 2018 World Cup. Despite the great efforts and many opportunities Nepal didn’t manage to score even one goal. 0:0 result does not reflect the situation on the pitch as Nepal easily should win 4:0 or 5:0.
It was very interesting to be a part of a crowd at Dasarath stadium and watch two national teams from the bottom of FIFA ranking playing (Nepal = 181, India = 161 out of 209 countries).
Feel sorry for the locals as they deserved to go through… well… maybe in 4 years 😉
For more football fans and fanatics videos have a look at my channel were I post materials from stadiums around the Europe (…and not only).
