SAFF Women’s Championship: Indian Eves go down 3-0 to Bangladesh, SET to lock horns with Nepal in semis – Check Out

MS Jahan Shopna got a brace for Bangladesh while Srimoti Sarkar got one to his name to hand the defeat to India. However, the defeat had no impact on India’s semi-final qualification as the Blue Tigresses had already booked their place in the last four, where they will face Nepal on Saturday at the same venue.

Bangladesh had the early momentum, taking the lead in the 12th minute when Sarkar threaded a ball through to Shopna, who darted between two defenders and slotted it past the keeper to put her side ahead.

India had their first chance of the game in the 19th when Anju Tamang was awarded a free kick 22 yards from goal. Youngster Priyangka Devi stepped up to the set-piece but curled it just outside the woodwork.

Minutes later, Sarkar doubled Bangladesh’s lead when she dribbled into the Indian box from the left flank and finished past the keeper.

India tried several long diagonals to catch the Bangladeshi high-line off guard but to no avail as the first half soon ended with the latter taking a two-goal lead into the tunnel.

The Blue Tigresses started well in the second half and quickly won a free kick on the right flank which was headed in by Priyangka towards Renu who had broken free from her marker.

However, the ball took an awkward bounce off the swing, ricocheted off Renu’s stomach and went safely into Bangladesh keeper Rupna Chakma’s hands.
