National team to play against Bengaluru FC

If unofficial source is to be believed, the Nepal-bound Indian National team for SAFF Championship is going to play a practice match against Bengaluru FC on Sunday, August 25, 4 pm at the Bangalore Football Stadium. 

National camp has been held in the Garden City since last Saturday, August 17, after getting thrashed in the hands of Tajikistan. This camp has been in all wrong news right from the beginning, firstly, Md. Rafique and Karma Tsewang were sent home owing to passport issue, later Denzil Franco sustained injury and returned home. Also, players are preparing in artificial turf while the championship will be played on the natural turf of Dasarath Rangasala Stadium, Kathmandu. 

Before SAFF Championship, this match is perhaps the only chance for Kovermans to set the combination right for the team. Meanwhile, Bengaluru FC too would be keen to play this friendly, they are yet to play a game till date.
