Kathmandu (Nepal), September 02 (ANI): Indian and Nepalese football teams are set to face each other for a friendly match scheduled for Thursday and Sunday in Kathmandu, the head coaches of both nations announced. The Indian men's senior national team arrived in Nepal on August 30, to play back-to-back international friendlies against Nepal on September 2 and 5. The 25-member Indian contingent flew out from New Delhi where they had assembled overnight after the completion of the preparatory camp in Kolkata which had kicked off on August 15.
