Nepal come in as a replacement for Lebanon, which had pulled out of a friendly at the last moment citing visa issues.
"With Lebanon pulling out at the 11th hour, our preparations had suffered a jolt. It was disappointing but at the same time the situation was beyond our control. It was just so hard to find a replacement as all other Teams had already finalised their schedule. But thanks to my colleagues in the AIFF, we managed to rope in a team at such a short notice and that's highly commendable," India chief coach Stephen Constantine said.
"I need to thank the Nepal FA for accepting our request. Personally, I have huge respect for Nepalese people and we look forward to a great match," Constantine added.
