Nepal and India played a goalless draw in an International Friendly played at Balewadi Stadium, Pune today.
In a match which saw Nepal's defensive unit work hard. Nepalese goalkeeper Kiran Chemjong was tested throughout the match. With U19 boys Ananta Tamang and Anjan Bista handed their first start for the senior side, Dhruba KC fielded a new look side for the friendly.
India were all over Nepal in the first half but failed to make the chance count.
Nepal looked a bit better than the first half after making changes in the first half. Debutant Sushil KC played very well and Bharat Shah and Nawayug were also handed debut.
After the match, Nepalese coach Dhruba KC was happy with the draw. "To hold India for a draw away from home is a good thing. We played a better second half than the first," said KC.
India's head coach Stefan Constantaine was happy with the chances created but was on despair for the team's failure to score in the first half.
