Nepal failed to reach the final of the SAFF U-19 Women's Championship after losing 1-0 against India in their final group match on Sunday.
Nepal's defeat, coupled with Sri Lanka's defeat against Bangladesh, denied them the spot in the final with the top two teams―Bangladesh and India―securing their place. Bangladesh hit a dozen past Sri Lanka and made it to the final as group winners while India finished second.
Priyanka Devi scored the only goal in the 67th minute for India. India needed a win against Nepal to book their place in the final.
Nepal had drawn Bangladesh and defeated Sri Lanka 6-0 and Bhutan 4-0 in its previous matches.
