'Target is to qualify'

Bangladesh will look to confirm their place in the AFC U-16 Women's Championship when the girls in red and green square off against hosts Myanmar in the second Group B match of Qualification Round-2 at Mandala Thiri Stadium today.

The match will get underway at 5:30pm.

Golam Rabbani Choton's charges made a strong start with a a massive 10-0 win over Philippines and only need to win either the match against Myanmar or China to secure a semifinal spot as well as a place in the eight-team final round. China, alongside Bangladesh, are on top following a 5-0 win over Myanmar.

If the girls put up the kind of spirited performance they did against Philippines with midfielders Maria Manda, Monica Chakma and forwards Tahura Khatun and Anuching Mogini all on song, the team management could hope for more of the same.

“I hope we play better football in our second match against Myanmar. We will try to win as our target is to qualify,” said vice-captain Akhi Khatun as quoted in a statement provided by Bangladesh Football Federation.

“I will try my best to score against Myanmar to keep our team in winning ways,” said striker Tahura, who struck four goals against Philippines.
