Bangladesh female footballers will get some inspiration and experience as two World Cup playing Colombian women booters arrived in the country for a three-day visit. 

Jessica Hurtado and Katerin Fabiola Castro Munoz visited Bangladesh Football Federation Thursday to explain their itinerary and the BFF acknowledged their visit by gifting two Bangladesh team jerseys as memorabilia.

BFF will also observe the “Women’s Football Day” Friday as the Colombian footballers will visit the newly-established Fortis BFF Academy in Beraid where they will be joined by 25 female players of the Elite Women’s Residency Camp.

BFF president Kazi Salahuddin will also be present during the occasion as the special guest. 

Munoz played for Colombia in the Germany World Cup back in 2011 while Hurtado represented her country in the 2012 London Olympics. 

“We have come here to inspire the Bangladeshi girls. We hope they can march forward to their goal,” said Munoz.

Hurtado, who is currently working as the ambassador of UAE football, also echoed her sentiment.

“We are very happy to come here. We hope the dream of Bangladeshi girls will be fulfilled,” said Hurtado in Spanish as her words were interpreted by Munoz. 

Saturday, the two footballers will join another programme at the artificial turf of the BFF House. 

As many as 100 female students from Unicef schools will join the one and a half hour-long session where they will spend some fun time with the foreign celebrities.

After spending the morning with the Unicef girls, Hurtado and Munoz is scheduled to leave Dhaka in the afternoon.
