Nepal won East Timor (2-1) in the first leg of the 2014 Brazil World cup qualifiers on June 29, Wednesday in Dashrath Stadium.

It was raining and the match was quite intersting too. Bharat Khawas who was playing his Sixth international match for nepal got a Red Card after getting two yellow cards, the second for diving inside penalty box. At that time the score was 1-1 and I had thought that the match would be a draw. Playing with just 10 players and with continuous raining Nepal put up a great fight against the East Timor.

Gratefully at 70th minute Jumanu Rai Scored the 2nd goal to make his home team win by 2-1.

Now the second leg of the match will be played on July 2, Saturday on 15:30 Nepal Standard Time.
East Timor Fifa Ranking is 200 and Nepal is 148.
Some day we hope we see Nepali in the World Cup Finals.
