UEFA Assist U-16 Football

Cambodia, Maldives confirmed

Cambodia, Maldives and a yet-to-be-named European team will play against hosts Bangladesh in the four-nation UEFA Assist U-16 Football Tournament, which will be held at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka from October 15 to 20.

The four teams will play against each other once and from there the final standings will be decided in this development tournament, which is held in different venues every year with funding from the European football governing body UEFA.

“AFC has confirmed the participation of Maldives and Cambodia while the European team will be finalised by the UEFA within a few days,” Bangladesh Football Federation general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag told The Daily Star yesterday.

Bangladesh had participated in the under-15 version of the same tournament in Thailand last year, finishing third among four teams. The boys in red and green lost against Cyprus 4-0 in their first match before holding Thailand to a goalless draw and wrapping up the campaign with a 10-0 drubbing of Maldives.
