Nepal has lost yet another tie in AFC Challenge Cup but if you want to blame the credentials of Graham Roberts than you are wrong. The final match was managed by Megh Raj KC and Upendra Man Singh. Instead of the former head coach instructions, the men in control against Turkmenistan withdrew Bikash Malla and Raju Tamang. Raju Tamang hit the crossbar against Maldives in the last match. Also Nepal played three strikers which is really unconventional and risky against the strong opponents. Even with three strikers in the field Nepal failed to score a goal but conceded three in the process.

Graham Roberts is returning to England on Thursday and he admired the support of Nepalese football fans.
