After Thursday's 2-1 defeat to Jordan on home territory, the Taiwanese were thirsty for revenge and made repeated attacks led by forward Chen Hao-wei (陳浩瑋) on the Nepalese side.

However, Taiwan started showing signs of distress from early on in the match when midfielder Anjan Bista of Nepal scored the first goal just three minutes into the match.
