AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers: Nepal stage remarkable comeback to beat Kyrgyzstan

Sep 18, 2015-

Nepal staged a remarkable comeback to defeat Kyrgyzstan 4-2 after going two goals down to put their one foot in the AFC Championship Finals here at the Dolen Omurzakov Stadium on Friday.

Rejin Subba once again starred in the game with two goals and one assist, while Manish Karki and Dinesh Henjan added one each for Nepal after the hosts took lead through Gulzhigit Borubaev and Emir Shigaibaev.

The win helped Nepal maintain lead in the points table with four points from two matches having defeated Jordan 2-1 in the first game. Jordan and Oman are tied on two points and goal difference at the second spot. A draw for Nepal will now be enough for them to qualify for the 2016 AFC U-17 Championship Finals.

Even if Jordan defeat Kyrgyzstan by a one-goal margin, a 1-0 defeat to Oman will still see Nepal qualify as Group 'B' winners. Hosts Kyrgyzstan are knocked out from the Qualifiers.
