Bangladesh are looking forward to clinch the UEFA Assist U-16 Development tournament title as they face the Maldives in their third and last match scheduled to be held at Bangabandhu National Stadium in the capital today.

The match will commence at 07:00pm.

After the match, Bangladesh Football Federation President Kazi Mohammad Salahuddin is expected to present in the prize distribution ceremony as the chief guest and distribute the prizes.

The hosts are just one win away from becoming champions in the tournament after an impressive 3-1 victory over favourites Faroe Islands in their second match which was held Saturday last.

With two straight victories, Bangladesh are on top of the four-team table with six points, three ahead of Faroe Islands and five ahead of the Maldives and Cambodia.

A total of four countries Iceland, Cambodia, the Maldives and host Bangladesh U-16 national football teams are taking part in the tournament.
