Bangladesh girls have seen the early exit door from the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship 2019 after conceding a huge 9-0 defeat against three-time champion Japan in their second match of Group A at IPE Chonburi Stadium in Thailand Wednesday.

Golam Rabbani Choton’s side, who suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against Thailand Sunday at the same venue, could barely stand up against the Asia’s benchmark women’s footballing nation, but displayed some promising runs into the final third of the game with long-range efforts.  

Bangladesh while participating in the same competition for the first time two years ago also conceded the same margin of defeat against another world’s women’s football power, North Korea, during the previous edition but they conceded 3-0 defeat against Japan in the same event.

After being held to a goalless draw against Australia in their first game, Japan, as declared earlier, put up an aggressive display against Bangladesh from the very beginning. 

Bangladesh defence couldn’t cope up with the fast and organized attacking approach of the opponent and rather conceded some wrong passes.

Japan’s forwards Momoko Nebu, Maika Hamano and midfielder Ririka Tanno scored a brace each while defender Mnaka Hayashi, captain-cum-midfielder Moe Ota and substitute defender Kyono Hiranaka added one each for the Little Nadeshiko, all within 61 minutes.

Japan took around 25 shots while Bangladesh had barely two to three shots, and mostly found themselves below the central line of the field. 

Maria Manda and Co found their passion after the 70th minutes but could barely test Japan goalkeeper Akane Okuma. 

“I would like to congratulate Japan, they played well and won. Of course, Japan are a strong team and our girls tried their best, unfortunately we lost. Our girls conceded two early goals and couldn’t control the game since. We didn’t expect [Wednesday's] result, but we know it was tough to win against Japan, and our girls were tired,” said Choton after the game.

Bangladesh will conclude their campaign against Australia Saturday.
