2011 SAFF Championship

2011 South Asian Football Federation Cup is underway right now in New Delhi, India. It is so nice to see so many of my friends following the game even though they are not in Nepal. My Facebook wall is flooded with game updates right now and I am happy to see so much enthusiasm. Nepal has always had lots of soccer fans and now I can see how passionate they are as well.

After the game, most of my friends had status that said :” Proud of Nepali soccer team. Semi finals now”. Also when I updated my status about the game, there were lots of likes and comments.

There are eight teams in this championship, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

They are divided into two groups as below.

Nepal is doing well so far. One of the best goal from Nepal was by Sagar Thapa against Bangladesh . 


 That goal was the winning goal for Nepal which helped Nepal reach Semi final now after the  match with Pakistan was a draw yesterday.

So far the tally looks like below.  

So for Semi final game, Nepal will play the winner of Group A on 9th December. I will be watching and supporting them. Most likely they will be playing against India, a very strong team so wishing Nepali team all the luck. Hope they can pass this point and get into the Final.

  Go Nepal!!!!
