Previous visit to Nepal
The Indian Football team last visited Nepal in 2015. The team was there in 2015 when India qualified for the play-offs to the Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifiers. At that time, their away match in the play-offs for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers ended goalless. India went to qualify for the qualifiers by virtue of their 2-0 victory in the first leg.
It would be a new experience for the whole 25-member Indian contingent as they have never been to Nepal in Indian colors. Sunil Chhetri, Pritam Kotal and Gurpreet Singh are the only players who were with the team in 2015.
