India slumped to a 0-2 defeat at the hands of neighbours Nepal, as opposition striker Rekha scored a brace to take the Himalayan nation to three points from two games. This result puts a dent in India’s chances of qualifying for the next round, as they are now level on three points with Nepal. Rekha was the star of the show in an otherwise cagey game; as she scored two second-half goals, to give Nepal their second win over India this month. Just like their previous match at the SAFF U-18 Championship, this was a tight game as well. It was an average beginning, as both the sides looked to find their feet.
