None of the football lovers had thought that he would come in such a dashing way.

A year before he was struggling with his wrist injury and had gone a complex surgery at TUTH which laid him off for almost eight months.

But he made a great come back.

Goalie Bishal Shrestha was declared the best goalkeeper of the Gurkha Cup for his outstanding performance. He received Rs 50,000 cash from ANFA.

"I had full faith on me that I would come with a bang. But I hadn't thought that I would be awarded with the best goalkeeper award", goalie Bishal exclusively told

"All credit goes to my family especially to my sisters who always motivated me  when I was in mental tension".

"I feared a lot that I couldn't come back to competitive football. But thanks to my sisters who really worked  hard during my treatment and post treatment. And to my club MMC, which took care of me throughout the year despite not playing for them".

" I am grateful to the club members who always backed me up.", added Shrestha.

"My team members who encouraged me everytime. They are my true inspirations".

"How can I forget the lovely fans", added Shrestha.

Besides all these tears and joy, Shrestha has different in his mind. He wants to become Nepal number one goalie.

"Ultimate target is to be under bar for Nepal National team. I have played in all age bar tournaments. I am now all geared up for the national team show", added goalie Shrestha.
