Bangladesh emerge new champion in history of SAFF

Bangladesh beat the host Nepal by 3-1 goals in the final of SAFF Women’s Championship, making the history to secure the title for the first time in the history of SAFF, at the Dasharath Rangasala Stadium in Kathmandu on Monday (September 19).

Krishna Rani Sarkar scored two goals while Shamsun Nahar scored the other goal.

The opening goal came in the 14th minute, as substitute Shamsunnahar smartly flicked home a finish to meet a cross from the right.

Nepal were mostly restricted to long shots from outside the box, but a clever free kick had to be saved by goalkeeper Rupna Chakma on the stretch, and the ensuing corner saw the teams almost level, with a goalmouth melee ending with Nepal hitting the post.

The hosts were made to pay in the 42nd minute, as captain Sabina showed great vision to release Krishna Rani Sorkar, who unleashed an unstoppable finish into the roof of the net that gave the Nepal keeper no chance.

Shamsunnahar replaced regular striker Shopna minutes before scoring, who had to go off with an injury.
