19 December 2021
Bangladesh outplayed Sri Lanka 12-0 in their last group match of the SAFF U-19 Women's Championship being held at the BSSM Kamal Stadium.
With the win, Bangladesh advanced to the finals of the championship with 10 points from three wins and one draw. The home team will meet India who had defeated Nepal in the early match of the day.
The goal scorers for Bangladesh were: Anuching Mogini (3', 77'), Ritu Porna Chakma (7', 43'), Shahada Akter Ripa (16', 49', 87'), Mossammat Akhi Khatun (47'), Afeida Khandaker (54', 70', 83') and Unnoti Khatun (84').
Sri Lanka head coach Sirisena Manjula Chaminda said his team came to the championship unprepared as the COVID-19 situation did not allow the team to train as required but was hopeful of good showing from the team in the years to come.
