Nepal Army Club thrashed Lumbini FC 5-0 in RedBull National League at ANFA Complex, Satdobato on Monday.

Bharat Khawas put Army ahead in the 4th minute.

Tanka Basnet and Nawayug Shrestha scored brace each in the second half for the team.

Nepal Army Club started the day brightly and made a breakthrough in the 4th minute of the match with its Skipper Bharat Khawas's right-footed strike from the edge of the D-area in a quick counter ball managed by Nawayug Shrestha.

Moments later, Lumbini FC were near to make an impressive cut off when its striker Bishwas Shrestha found himself in one vs oe position after Youddha Shahi and Santosh Tamang collided with each other but Army glovesman Bikesh Kuthu cleared the threat.

Five minutes before the half time whistle,  Armymen had two decent chances. Bharat Khawas was one-vs-one with goalie Dilip Chettri in the 40th minute but he was superbly tackled by Bimal Basnet. Nawayug Shrestha hit the top bar in the 43rd minute after picking up a pass from Dipak Gurung who beat two Lumbini defenders after dodging them.

The ceasing pressure by Armymen culminated more as they added four goals in the second period.
