Women team in perky mood before SAFF mission

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Bangladesh national women’s football  team are ready to begin their SAFF women’s football championship campaign on March 12 against Pakistan at Biratnagar Rangasala Stadium, Nepal. Seven countries of South Asian region splitting into two groups are taking part in the tournament.

Bangladesh team will go to Nepal with some confidence when the team contains most of the Under-16 players, who just returned home yesterday from Myanmar after completing a successful mission in the AFC Under-16 Women’s Football Championship qualifying round when they made their room in the AFC age group final round securing the group runners-up spot.

SAFF is now their next mission where they will compete as one of the top favourites along with India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka.

Bangladesh team’s head coach Golam Rabbani Choton when talking to the reporters yesterday at the Bangabandhu National Stadium also said that they will go to Nepal with the target to play in the final of the fifth edition of the women’s top football competition. Choton said that their initial target is to be move into the final but the coach, who has been looking after the team for a long time is very happy with the players’ fitness.

Chotton, said, “Players in the camp and under training for a long time and by this time they also played different competitions in national and age group, so I am very happy with the girls’ fitness.”

“No doubt, India and Nepal are very strong opponents but, now we are also not far behind, we have also ability to fight with them. Earlier, we had no vast experiences in the international arena and we had to concede defeat very often. But recently, we played so many international competitions and gained some experiences, so our girls are also now matured to play in this level.”

Meanwhile, Bangladesh women’s Under-16 team returned home at the early hour of

Tuesday from Myanmar and will leave for Nepal on March 10.
