Bimal Gharti Magar who is just 15 debuts for the national team today against the Bangladesh and also becomes the youngest ever Nepali player to represent for the national team. Previously this record was in the name of Rohit Chand who made a debut at the age of 17 and has been regular for national team since then.
Nepali strikers are criticized for their performance in recent years and the regulars like Jumanu, Santosh and Anil were placed in bench by the coach Krishna Thapa, surprisingly he opted to give a break through for an ANFA academy’s finest talent Bimal Gharti Magar who is just 15. He was handed national team jersey with number 25. Bimal for the best performer for ANFA U-14 in Subroto Cup where ANFA finished as a winner. He was also consistent performer for the u-15 in the match against Sankata, Bansbari and other A division clubs.
It is uncertain if Bimal will be playing regular for national team or not but now he is highly motivated with the opportunity. He has height, Pace and similar physical structure like other national team players but what he lacks is confidency but with the amount of the chances to come he can gain them. Rohit has developed himself very well after getting slotted at national team and one of the key figure in the team. Now all the Nepali football supports have high hope from Bimal in coming years.
