Anjan Bista's solitary strike settled the international friendly against Pakistan in Nepal's favor at the Dasharath Stadium on Wednesday.
Bista scored eight minutes from time to win the friendly for Nepal. Bista stretched on a cross from Sunil Bal to score the goal. It is Bista's fourth goal in two matches for the national side. He had also scored a hat-trick in the 3-1 victory against Bangladesh on September 27 at the same venue.
Having scored 11 international goals, Bista now trails only to Hari Khadka and Nirajan Rayamajhi by two goals.
Pakistan had put up a spirited performance but their comeback in the international stage ended in the narrow defeat.
