SAFF Women’s Championship: Nepal knocked out at semis

Nepal’s campaign at the 4th SAFF Women’s Championship football ended with the defeat against hosts, India, in the semi-final on Monday.

Although Nepal recorded impressive wins in the group phase of the championships, India was an enormous challenge. Nepal had lost all previous meetings with India at the SAFF Women’s Championships.

Jitma gave India the lead with her maiden goal just before the half time break which was followed by Indumati who made it 2-0 to India.

Nepal got a goal on the 75th minute through striker Sabitra Bhandari but it was proven merely a consolation as Sasmita added another for the hosts to book their place in the final of the 4th SAFF Women’s Championships. RSS
