Bangladesh boys’ football team showed some guts and rigidity but in the end had to concede a 3-0 defeat in the AFC U-16 tournament against a strong Yemen side Sunday in Qatar. 

Bangladesh boys, who are much inferior in physical ability compared to their opponent, held the defensive formation tight in the first half despite a plethora of attacks from the middle eastern side. 

Goalkeeper Mehedi was the savior for the boys in red in green as he made numerous saves to help his side leave the field with a clean sheet during the break. 

Bangladesh even had the chance to score during the half hour mark but one of the Yemen defenders cleared the ball through a header. 

But after the break, the intensity of the Yemen attacks increased and by capitalizing on a sloth defense, Ali Hasan broke the deadlock in the 64th minute. 

Hamzah Ahmed Mahross scored two more goals in the 73rd and 78th minutes and the difference could have been even bigger but Mahadi saved a corner in the final minute to spare the blushes of his side. 

But Bangladesh head coach Robert Martin was content with the effort. 

“Boys tried hard and made a very good effort, I am happy with that,” said the Englishman after the match.
