KATHMANDU, Feb 28: Nepal’s renowned football star, Sabitra Bhandari aka Samba, will not play in the upcoming final match of the WAFF Women’s Championship.

Despite the anticipation surrounding the title clash between Nepal and Jordan in the tournament underway in Saudi Arabia, Bhandari’s absence is confirmed due to her commitment to play in the highest league of women’s football in France, as confirmed by All Nepal Football Association (ANFA).

Bhandari recently inked an 18-month contract with En Avant Guingamp, a prestigious French club competing in the Division 1 Féminine, the premier division of women’s football in France.

While Bhandari’s absence is a setback for the Nepali team, their journey to the final was secured with a hard-fought victory over Lebanon, clinching a 2-1 triumph and earning a coveted spot in the championship showdown.
