MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine national football team continues its preparations for the AFC Challenge Cup in Maldives in May by taking on Nepal in a friendly on April 11.

The match will take place in Qatar, according to the Philippine Azkals’ website.

It will be the second meeting between the Philippines and Nepal in a friendly. The Azkals routed Nepal, 4-0, when they played in October 2011 at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

It will be the third international friendly that the Azkals will play under the helm of new head coach Thomas Dooley.

They had previously held a full-strength Malaysian squad to a goalless draw, and lost 0-1 to higher-ranked Azerbaijan earlier this month.
