SAFF U-20 Football: Girls cement South Asian dominance

Rupna Chakma and Shamsunnar Jr were the only two senior players in Bangladesh's squad and played significant roles in every match, using the experience they gained from past failures in age-group tournaments to excel. Rupna, who conceded only one goal in four matches, was adjudged the best goalkeeper while Shamsunnar was named the most valuable player and top-scorer with five goals. Photo: Firoz Ahmed
