When you have 6 ft plus players in opposition, what should be your game plan?
When Nepal National U-22 team will take on Uzbekistan U-22 team on Wednesday, the same question might be on air for Nepal Coach, Krishna Thapa.
Former Nepal assistant coach, Raju Kaji Shakya has a suggestion for the team.
"Play like Spanish team".......
"Nepalese players are shorter than Uzbeks. Boys need to play short passes and try to penetrate inside Uzbeks defense line", Coach Shakya adds, "Uzbeks play long ball and crosses the ball from the flank. We must block them in the flanks".
"Boys should play one-two passes and keep the ball possession with them without being frightened", Shakya said, "In fact, they should play like Spain. Keep the ball possession and score the goals".
"Uzbeks always create space in their own area and utilize the open space created in opponent field", Shakya added, "Nepalese boys need to fulfil their individual duty. Defenders need to be alert on aerial ball".
