I am happy to see this amazing performance from the Nepali Chelis. I hope they will perform well today against Bangladesh and qualify to the next stage as the group winner. But sad to see Pakistan performing badly.Any scorum users from Pakistan here?, what’s the situation of Women’s football in Pakistan?
