Bangladesh’s first female referee, Joya Chakma expressed delight after receiving the Fifa badge Saturday from Fifa instructor Farkad Abdullayev at BFF House in Dhaka.

Joya, who was recognized by world football governing body Fifa as the country’s first female referee, said she is now patiently waiting for her first official assignment.

She added, “I really can’t express my emotions. I got the letter beforehand, now I got the Fifa badge. The upcoming year is a big test for me. If I am assigned Fifa-AFC matches, I must fulfill my responsibility. This is a new challenge for me.

“I will face no problems whatsoever in officiating tournaments of the senior players. I might get an assignment in the New Year. I am waiting for that.”
