Santosh Tamang and Anjan Bista, members of the Nepal National Football Team banned by the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA), will return to the field this week.
After spending the night at the club, with Kuwait under World Cup Qualification, the discipline committee of ANFA imposed sanctions on Santosh and Anjana for soccer and gave them a fine of 50,000.
Similarly, Bimal Gharti Magar and Dinesh Rajbanshi, who were involved in the same scandal, were banned for 90 days with a fine of Rs.50,000, due to which all four players lost the game with Kuwait under the World Cup Qualifiaction and the South Asian Games (SAG) at home ground.
