Bangladesh U-16 girls suffer 3-0 defeat to China in the 3rd match

Bangladesh girls concluded their AFC U-16 Women’s Championship 2019 campaign with a 3-0 defeat against China PR in their last Group B match at the Mandalar Thiri Stadium in Mandalay of Myanmar on Sunday.

 

But despite the loss, the young Bengal girls continued to show signs of improvement and exhibit great fighting spirit against a side whose senior women’s team are ranked much more above than Bangladesh women’s team in the latest Fifa ranking.

 

Bangladesh have already secured a place in the final round beating hosts Myanmar and Philippines by 1-0 and 10-0 respectively in their 2nd and 1st Group B Qualifying Round-2.

 

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina congratulated the Bangladeshi girls for qualifying for the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship final round.
