Bangladesh U-21 hockey team emerged as the champions of the Men's Junior AHF Cup 2023 after beating hosts Oman in the shootout at Sultan Al Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat Thursday night.

Goalkeeper Nuruzzaman Nayan stole the show with a heroic display after stipulated time ended 1-1 as Bangladesh won the marathon shootout 7-6.

The boys in red and green conceded an early goal in the second minute before Rokibul Hasan Rocky made it all square in the final quarter.

Nayan denied three attempts in the shootout, including one in sudden death.

Bangladesh earlier defeated Hong Kong (4-0), Sri Lanka (14-0) and Uzbekistan (6-1) in the group stage to qualify for the 2023 Junior Asia Cup before outplaying Thailand 3-0 in the semi-finals.

The winners returned home Friday.
