Kiran Sunar scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Nepal snatched a 1-1 draw

nepal vs uzbekistan

Kiran Sunar scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Nepal snatched a 1-1 draw with defending champions Uzbekistan in Sunday's Group C opener at the AFC U-16 Championship at Muangthong Stadium.

Alexander Mochinov's Uzbekistan dominated the majority of the game against a battling Nepal and the 2012 champions eventually took the lead at the beginning of the second half through Jonibek Kuchimov's penalty.

However, Nepal snatched an incredible equaliser in stoppage time at the end of the second half when Sunar headed in Anjan Bista's free-kick.

Cheered on by a small group of fans complete with band, Uzbekistan got off to a bright start as captain Ilkhomjon Alijanov headed just wide from Islom Kenjabaev's free-kick in the eighth minute.

Yusuf Shoimov and Azizjon Ganiev then combined beautifully to set Kenjabaev through on goal in the 14th minute, but his effort was saved by the Nepal goalkeeper Roman Rasaili.

And it took 20 minutes for Nepal, who were without suspended Anderlecht striker Bimal Gharti Magar, to record their first meaningful effort as Sunil Bal's goalbound shot was well blocked by defender Shokhrukh Mahmudxojoyev.

But it was Uzbekistan, who were without suspended midfielder Sukhrob Nurulloev, who were creating the better of the chances and the defending champions went close to another breakthrough on 28 minutes when the unmarked Kuchimov failed to convert Kenjabaev's cross at the back post.

Nepal, though, produced one of the moves of the game 10 minutes before half-time when neat combination passing from Gaurab Budhathoki, Sunar and Bikash Thapa teed up Bista, who blazed over from a promising position.

But Uzbekistan started the second half the better of the two sides and were awarded a penalty nine minutes after the restart when Kenjabaev was fouled inside the area by Ananta Tamang after being played in by Kuchimov, who calmly dispatched the resulting spot kick.

Uzbekistan continued to attack as they looked to put the game beyond their opponents and midfielder Jakhongir Akhmadov fired a powerful 20-yard shot just wide on the hour mark.

Kenjabaev and Kuchimov were beginning to run the show in the middle of the park as they split the Nepalese defence time and again, but Uzbekistan were unable to find a crucial second.

Nepal, who have only qualified for two previous AFC U-16 Championships, then amazingly nearly grabbed an equaliser with two minutes remaining when Sujit Gurung's shot from distance was parried to safety by Uzbekistan goalkeeper Akrom Khodjaev before Bista's flick was cleared off the line.

But with Uzbekistan appearing to have done just enough, Sunar headed home from Bista's free-kick from the left in the third minute of stoppage time to snatch a point for Nepal.
