Munoz, Hurtado in town

Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) yesterday flew in two Colombian female football stars -- Katerin Fabiola Castro Munoz and Jessica Hurtado -- to promote the upcoming Bangamata U-19 Women's International Gold Cup, which is scheduled to take place in Dhaka from April 22 to May 3.

Katerin Castro had been a member of Colombian women's team during the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. The 27-year-old striker scored five goals for the national team so far. Jessica Hurtato was another professional footballer who is now involved with sports management and coaching.

Both footballers are expected to meet with BFF president Kazi Salahuddin this afternoon. They are also expected to meet the Bangladesh under-19 women's team and take part in a football clinic involving budding footballers.

Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Laos and Tajikistan will compete in the Bangamata U-19 Women's International Gold Cup.
