Nepal will look to bounce back from the 4-0 defeat against UAE in the second round of World Cup Qualifiers when they face Yemen at Dasharath Stadium on Tuesday.
Nepal had lost to UAE in Dubai on November 16 and will face Yemen at the national stadium at 7 pm.
Coaches and captain from both the sides address a pre-match press conference on Monday and laid out their claims for the match. Yemen head coach Miroslav Soukup said Nepal will have the home advantage but brushed off if the late evening start would work to their advantage. He also praised the Nepali side for their performance against UAE.
"Nepal created chances and registered shots against UAE which is good. We feel the weather here has been good and expect a good crowd," said Soukup.
Nepal's head coach Vincenzo Alberto Annese he had requested ANFA for the late start and requested fans to get behind their team on Tuesday. "The tickets are also really cheap. I request the fans to get behind their team on matchday," he said.
ANFA Vice President Deepak Khatiwada, speaking in the press meet after the PMPC, said ANFA has arranged buses for fans to return home. "We have arranged 15 buses which will run in various routes. Fans can travel on those buses by showing their tickets," he said.
The match will be broadcasted live by NTV Plus.
