Nepal, however motivated it may be from its first round match, seems to have a tough time playing against Jordan which ranks 65 places higher in Fifa ranking and is Quarter finalist of Asia Cup 2011 (which Nepal has never been qualified for)! Nevertheless, scores for games played by both of the teams this year are similar (played seven matches in 2011 and lost one) and both teams look stronger on their own part to make the tonight game a competitive one.

Nepal Vs Jordan is scheduled to kick off at 21:45 Nepal Standard Time. Here’s the Nepali Squad.

Well, the game is definitely a challenging one for Nepal and hopefully Nepali team will give their best today for a winning result. Come on, let’s support them. All the best Nepali team, we all are with you!!


  1. I havent found any website promising live broadcast for today’s match. Anyway you could listen it live from Kantipur radio and could get live updates from tweets and websites like! Hope that should work.

  2. Well but if you see the stats, out of 4 matches Nepal’s 3 matches were at home while Jordan’s 3 matches were away. So the comparision is not proper comparision.

    Jordan is far better then Nepal.

    Also Nepal team with Sahukhala on bench cannot beat Jordan.
    Sahukhala needs to play full 90 mins to beat Jordan, if not it is easy win for Jordan.
