Nepal lost the opening match of Bangabandhu Gold Cup 2018 against Tajikistan. But, along with the lost, Nepali team was forced to replace three defenders due to injury problems.
Skipper Biraj Maharjan was substituted early in the first half by Suman Aryal as he knocked down. Similarly, centre back due Aditya Chaudhary and Ananta Tamang were also taken off the field due to injury in the second half.
