Nepal saw off Bangladesh (the highest-ranked team in the tournament) 1-0 in the South Asian Football Federation Cup in the final minute of injury time tagged onto the end of their Group B game, with a 45-ish-yard free-kick from captain Sagar Thapa doing the business as the last grains of sand ran through the egg-timer of destiny.

Stand by for some cracking ‘Indian-though-very-nearly-Welsh’ commentary…

Cracking goal, but did he mean it? Thapa himself reckons he did and, y’know what? We’re just about willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.
