Pakistan women’s national football team returned to the international tournament after a long eight years. After a long time, they made a comeback in the Saf Football Championship. They lost 3-0 to arch rivals India in the first match. Pakistan girls are facing Bangladesh in the second match.

Bangladesh women’s football team coach Golam Rabbani Chhotan thinks only victory. In his words, “We will play to win the match. I will think about the number of goals later.’ He said this after the team practice at the Armed Police Field on Friday (September 9).

Bangladesh coach said, ‘We have seen Pakistan’s game, analyzed it and prepared the plan accordingly and our players will play according to the plan. I hope I can present good football and leave the field with a win.’

He also said, ‘Our girls are in the game regularly, they got proof of that in the last match. The doubt that was there due to not being able to play a practice match with Dubai before coming here, was completely removed in the last match. The girls played well and to plan throughout the 90 minutes. In the next match too, they will play according to the plan and with the maximum.

Bangladesh won 2-0 in their last SA Games match against Pakistan in 2010. Sabina scored a goal in that match held in Dhaka. Farhana scored the remaining goal.

Choton said, ‘We have worked on the weakness that was seen with the finishing in the last match against Maldives. Also discussed in team meeting. Work has also been done in the field. Hopefully tomorrow (Saturday) will reflect. You really have to take advantage of the opportunity and leave the field with a win. A win against Pakistan is very important to survive in the tournament.’

Before the match against Bangladesh, Pakistan coach Ahmed Sharif said, ‘We showed a fighting spirit against India (in the previous match). The girls played as planned. Fought till the last moment. After returning to international tournaments after a long break, we aim to improve ourselves. So we will play against Bangladesh in the same mood.’

The Bangladesh vs Pakistan match will start at 1:15 pm Bangladesh time at Dasarath Rangshala in Kathmandu.
