India dash Bangladesh women’s final hopes

Bangladesh women’s dream of making an upset to play in the final of the SAFF Women’s Championship were shattered when they tasted a crushing 4-0 defeat at the hands of India in the semifinal yesterday.  

Held at the Rangasala Stadium Biratnagar, Nepal, India led the first half by 3-0 and added another one in the injury period of the 90 minutes game.

After winning the match India will play the final for fifth successive times when the giants in the regional women’s football grabbed the victory in the all previous four occasions to win the titles.

India will face Nepal in the final when earlier in the first semi-final, the hosts outclassed the Sri Lanka by same margin.

Though it was very much predictable that India would win the match, as the top favourites in the tournament but at the early hour of the match it did not look that the thing would be so comfortable when Bangladesh began the game with some positive approach and trying to taking the match in control.

But the holders Indian team took time to settle in the match.  They opened the scoring from a counter attack on 18th minute and they doubled the advantage just four minutes later on 22nd (2-0) and made the first half tally 3-0 on 37th minute.

Bangladesh after conceding two goals in a span of four minutes became more disorganised, though they were trying hard to play attacking game but plenty of wrong passes, specially, before rushing inside the area or before the final move losing the possessions were big reasons failing even to build some resistance.

Indian women, who scored all first half three goals from counter attack, were very cool and disciplined during the moves and beat their Bangladesh counterpart in positional game, technique and pace.

India women were also far better in their game plans than Bangladesh when the latter could hardly  make any threat but creating three scoring chances at the initial hour of the match but none of the forwards- Sirat Jahan Swapna and Krishna could not take shot just from the edge of the area.
