Nepal’s football governing body, the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA), stated that the official head coach of the team, Johan Kalin, is currently in his home country, Sweden. Therefore, due to travel restrictions in the country, he will not be available in two friendlies against Bengali Tigers.
