Bangladesh girls clinched a dominating 1-0 win over Chonburi FC U-17 women’s team in the first practice match in Thailand Friday, ahead of their second straight participation in the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship, scheduled to begin on September 15.

The visitor started the game brightly as left-back Shamsunnahar put Bangladesh ahead in the 32nd minute, placing home with an angular shot into the far post after striker Anuching Mogini’s initial effort was blocked.

Playing with a 5-4-1 formation, head coach Golam Rabbani Choton fielded a total of 22 players out of 23 in the game with the only exception being goalkeeper Yasmin Akhter. 

Goalkeeper Rupna Chakma, defenders Shamsunnahar, Anai Mogini, Akhi Khatun, Nazma and Nilufa Yesmin Nila, midfielders Maria Manda and Monika Chakma, left winger Shamsunnahar Jr, right winger Tohura Khatun and striker Anuching started and played the full opening half.

“It was a one-sided game. We dominated the game and created lot of chances but couldn’t avail all of those. The opponent goalkeeper also performed very well with some fine saves. I’m satisfied with the performance,” said Choton after the game.

The girls will undertake a recovery session at Muangthong Training Facility in Bangkok Saturday. 

They will play against the same opponent in the second practice match Monday.
