KATHMANDU: Nepal registered their second straight win in the AFC U-14 Regional Festival for Football as they defeated Afghanistan 2-0 in Tajikistan on Monday.
The Nepali side scored two goals in the second half in the match played at FC Istiqlol Academy in Dushanbe.
Rejin Subba scored both the goals-- the first in the 47th and the second in the 54th.
Subba had scored a goal against Pakistan to help Nepal with their inaugural match on May 22.
"We dominated the game early on and could have score more. But, the boys worked hard and the effort paid off well," Nepal's head coach Hari Khadka said.
"We believe our strength is in attacking football and try to emulate the same type of play in tomorrow's match as well," he added.
Nepal are scheduled to play the hosts Tajikistan tomorrow at 10:30 am NST.
