“The Nepal federation and government invited us to play, and we thank them for the opportunity and the gesture.

“Nepal are a very tough side, especially when they play against us, and we are aware of the extreme challenge the two matches present us,” he added.

Other than Chhetri, Pritam Kotal and Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, none of the players of the current team have been to Nepal with the senior side.

The trio was there in 2015 when India qualified from the play-offs to the Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

For Chhetri, this is his fourth visit to the Himalayan nation.
