Midfielder Awas Lamichhane has made his debut for the Nepal national team for the first time.
Interim head coach Prabesh Katuwal has given him his maiden appearance as he came on for Sesehang Angdembe in the second half in the friendly against Pakistan.
Awas has been playing domestic football for APF Football Club. He was called up for the closed camp for the friendly against Bangladesh as well but he didn't make the cut in the 23-man squad.
Awas was instrumental for APF as they won the Aaha Rara Gold Cup last year as well as the gold medal in the ninth National Games recently.
