AFC U16 Champions - The Boys Needs Step Up

Nepal U16 team will participate in AFC U16 championship which is set to kick off in September in Thailand. They will be participating alongside Asia's biggest teams like China, Japan and Iran and face a tough task to make it to the final four if they are supposed to make it to the U17 World Cup 2015.

The U16 teams has been doing great to defeat the B division outfits like Madhyapur Youth Association, Chyasal Youth club but this could be nothing more than a joke for the U16 side that needs to step up to match the level of Football which will be played in Thailand.
The AFC U16 championship is not only about world cup but its is also about Nepal's future in a long term. We must be aware of the fact that the players during the tournament will be eyed by top clubs for their youth academy and if the players impress during the tournament, they will be given chance. Scouts from different places will be eyeing the tournament, so ANFA must act and improve the skills of the players.
Also when I saw the U16's game during the AAHA RARA gold cup, the players were concerned about the individual performance than the team play. The coaches must take care of this and they must provide some kind of counseling class in order to boost up the moral and team respect to the guys.
