A U-14 National team player, Bimal Gharti Magar writes his name in the history of Nepalese football!
Magar, who hails from Buthaha, Nawalparasi, is an ANFA academy player who was transfered from Butwal ANFA academy to Central ANFA academy after seeing his rocking performance in Subroto Cup held in New Delhi and in AFC U-14 Football Festival played last year.
Magar played his debut international match for Nepal against Bangladesh on Thursday, making him the youngest player to play for Nepal in the history.
Earlier, the record was under the name of Rohit Chand, who had played his debut match for Nepal at the age of 17 in 2009.
A lanky boy, whose height is 5 ft 10 inch, is rated as one of the best youth strikers that Nepal ever produced.
"I am very happy to play debut match against Bangladesh", Magar spoke to GoalNepal.com after the match.
"It feels great to partner with my best player Bharat Khawas up front", Magar said, "I was enjoying the match. I don't know how I played but this is a memorable experience for me".

Coach Krishna Thapa appreciated the young boy's performance in the post match conference.
"He is a very young boy. He played well in the first match. I can't demand more from him in the first international match", coach Thapa added.
