Hong-Kong based defender Zesh Rehman will be arriving in Kathmandu today to join the Pakistan National Team squad.

Rehman, who is South Asia’s highest profile player, expressed his personal interest in representing the Pak Shaheens in the SAFF Cup and will be arriving via Cathay Pacific today at the Tribhuvan International Airport at 10:00 PM.

With Nabil Aslam and Shabir Khan out, the pressure will be on Zesh to deliver and it remains to be seen whether he makes an impact on the side or not.
