Nepal have been drawn in Group ‘A’ with hosts Myanmar, Australia and Uzbekistan, which starts from April 26. Nepal will play against Australia on April 26 and go up against Uzbekistan on April 28 and against Myanmar on April 30.
Nepal will play two friendly against the age-group teams of Chendu State. The dates of the friendly match will be decided in coming days.
