ANFA rewarded the young guns of Nepali football i.e.i Nepal's U16 team with a cash prize of Rs 25,000 each. Nepal U16 team played superbly winning 2 matches against Bahrain and Turkmenistan whil helding Iraq to a draw and confirmed their berth in the AFC U16 finals which will be held in Thailand next year.
ANFA handed the cash prize to 3 officails (coaches) as well in presence of ANFA comittee members. Certainly the cash prize will be a huge boost for the young guns and they can perform even better in the tournament finals. Iraq U16 team reached the semifinals in the previous edition. As they managed to qualify at the expense of such a team, they certainly can surprise the other teams in the tournament. Nepal U16 team is the only qualified team for the AFC U16 2014 tournament from South Asian region.
