India vs Nepal, SAFF Championship 2021 Live: Despite a jittery start to its 2021 South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Championship campaign, India find themselves in the final for a record 12th time against first time finalists Nepal, on Saturday, October 16. The exciting match will be hosted at the National Football Stadium in Male, Maldives and is scheduled to start at 08:30 PM IST.
After two disheartening draws, the Blue Tigers revived their 2021 SAFF Championship campaign with back-to-back wins against Nepal and defending champions Maldives. Skipper Sunil Chhetri once again turned the saviour as he scored the lone goal in the must-win match against Nepal. The Indian talisman followed it by a brace in their 3-1 win against hosts Maldives in the virtual semi-final.
On the other hand, it will be a new experience for Nepal. The Himalayan country have beaten Maldives while drawing with Bangladesh to march into their maiden SAFF Championship final. They have shown that they are no pushovers in this tournament and it needed a late goal from Chhetri for India to beat them in the round-robin match. The Gorkhalis will look to improve their performance and aim to clinch the prestigious regional tournament championship.
