Nepal vs Afghanistan World Cup Qualifier[Update]

Yesterday, July 27, turned out to be a great day for Nepali sports fans. Nepal saved face by holding Jordan to a draw(goal each) in football World Cup Qualifying match played in Kathmandu. In their previous encounter just a week earlier, Jordan had trashed Nepal 9-0, in Amman.

Over in Dublin, Ireland, Nepali U-19 cricket team scored 42 run victory over Afghanistan, in their opening ICC U-19 World Cup qualifier.

Although Nepal is out of football World Cup qualifier, the U-19 cricket team could make it all the way(at least that’s what the fans are hoping for). Best of luck to the team.

At Twitter, compared to the excitement over Nepal vs Jordan football match, cricket received slightly less enthusiasm. @kakabaa live tweeted the match( from his home in Kathmandu), in Nepali. It was quite lively, especially towards the end when Nepal was inches from claiming victory.
