NPC's results a reality check

NPC's poor showing in the AFC Presidents Cup was the worst performance ever by any Nepali club in that tournament. The cops managed to garner only 2 points including a humiliating loss to featherweights Taiwan Power Company. The previous low was when MMC accumulated 3 points in the second edition of the tournament.

It's not the end of the world for Nepali football, as even the best clubs in the world from time to time have abysmal results, but before our football officials start gloating about the results of meaningless tournaments such as the Prime Minister's Cup and how Nepal has the "best youth football" in South Asia (which I totally disagree with), they need to understand that football in this country is nowhere near where it needs to be.

  1. I absolutely agree. As a keen follower and supporter of Nepali football, in my opinion domestic football is going through the worst phase. I am not sure when this cycle of uncertainity eclipsing Nepali football will cease. It is true that in the junior level just like cricket we have done relatively well. But when it comes to senior level we find ourselves a struggling lot.This is largely because of All Nepal Football Association's failure to create a football culture,virtually none existent,and a healthy environment for the game to thrive.
