Nepal's Promising Talent- Bimal Gharti Magar on FIFA's cover story

The game was almost coming to an end, few minutes was remaining at the SAF(South Asian Football) Championship Tournament. Nepal was trailing behind with a goal against Pakistan. Then , this lad Bimal Gharti Magar entered to the ground as a substitute. The no. 25 scored at the last minutes and kept the competition alive. The Nepalese supporters who had lost their hope on their team was revived again and chanting his name “Bimal”.
Bimal Gharti Magar cover story on FIFA's site

Before some minutes ago the name was unknown to anyone. Now, the cheers were filled with his name and Nepal reached semi-final of the SAF championship. After this performance, he came up with many records through which he bagged the “youth Player Of the Award”. His name and fame was rising gradually, which led him to get contracted with the European Club Anderlecht’s youth team. He has performed well in Anderlecht’s young team scoring and making special contributions for the team.

Recently, FIFA’s official site, ( published a  cover story on Bimal Gharti Magar naming him as the rising star appreciating his playing style and performances. With his last minute goal equalizing for the Nepalese Team against Pakistan helped Nepal secure spot in the semi final leading that group. FIFA stated that in its story that “Bimal could not believe that he had scored for his country in such a crucial and thrilling match. In its story FIFA rates Bimal as a frontline and rising star. In recent U-16 championship other foreign coach also expressed his amusement in the youth’s talent.

FIFA rates Bimal Gharti Magar as South Asian’s most promising rising star. Some weeks back when Nepal played the U-16 championship in Bangkok and outclassed Kuwait 2- 1. The team coach appreciated his technical game and the overall superiority of NepaleseTeam’s game to theirs. Nepal held the usual winners Uzbekistan 1-1 and lost to the North Koreans thus being unable to make the qualifiers.

Bimal Gharti Magar caught the eyes of FIFA in this tournament. FIFA asked its regional governing body of football AFC(Asian Football Council) to prepare a news on this talent and sent some questionnaire, based on which the  cover story was prepared.

This cover story of Bimal is surely going to make some attractions to Nepalese football in International Arena and Nepalese football supporters can feel the pride to see their Icon making some headline in the Football governing body’s official site. Which I think is the pride of the whole south Asia.

Best wishes to the ever rising and promising talent, who is under contract to Anderlecht- the Belgium club unleashing his potential and flourishing in International football gaining valuable exposure to football and exposing his talents.
