Bangladesh Under-19 Women’s National Football Team landed at Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Saturday in order to take part in AFC Under-19 Women’s Championship 2019 Qualifiers.

The girls went through a hectic flight as the trip had a lengthy transit in Istanbul, Turkey. Young eves eventually arrived at Atlas Hotel at 6:30am local time in Dushanbe.

Team sources reported that all the players are in good spirits.

Bangladesh will have to battle the conditions of Tajikistan along with the opponents in the tournament as the temperature of Dushanbe is drastically colder compared to Bangladesh. The temperature is reported to hover around 15- 19 degree celsius.  

Players will go on with their fitness routine after a period acclimatisation.

All the three teams Bangladesh, South Korea and Chinese Taipei landed at Dushanbe on the day and are staying at the same hotel. 

Team and staff also had a meeting to review the tournament and set their targets.
