Action from the AFC U-16 Women's Championship match between Japan and Bangladesh in Chonburi Wednesday AFC

Bangladesh, who opened their campaign with a 1-0 loss to host Thailand at the same venue Sunday, will conclude their AFC mission with a clash against formidable Australia Saturday

Bangladesh U-16 women’s football team head coach Golam Rabbani Choton has blamed the fear factor for his charges’ demoralizing 9-0 defeat at the hands of Japan in their Group A match of the AFC U-16 Championship in Chonburi, Thailand Wednesday.

The girls in red and green shipped two goals into just six minutes in the first half and went into the break with a 5-0 deficit to their name.

Bangladesh conceded four more goals in the second half and face an improbable task if they are to somehow make it to the next ground.

“Japan are undoubtedly a better team than us. Even then, leaking nine goals is not acceptable,” said Choton after the game. 

“The plan was not to give away any goal in the first 20 minutes. The smaller teams are up against it when they concede a goal to bigger teams early in the game. But we shipped three in 20 minutes.

“The players were a bit apprehensive about Japan. Because they are the champion of the 2014 Fifa U-17 World Cup.”

Bangladesh, who opened their campaign with a 1-0 loss to host Thailand at the same venue Sunday, will conclude their AFC mission with a clash against formidable Australia Saturday.
