In SAFF Women’s Championship 2022 Bangladesh defeated Nepal 3-1 in the Final of SAFF Women’s Championship 2022 and also set multiple records tumbling at Dasharath Stadium on Monday.
Bangladesh and Nepal both are yet to concede a goal in this tournament before the final, Bangladesh outclassing the Maldives 3-0, Pakistan 6-0, and India 3-0 in the group stage & Bhutan 8-0 in Semi-Final. While Nepal outclassed the Bhutan 4-0 and Sri Lanka 6-0 in the group stage & India 1-0 in Semi-Final.
The Bangladesh team defeated hosts Nepal by 3-1 in the finals before a full stadium to watch some brilliant football on display. Bangladesh skipper Sabina Khatun, who was the top scorer of the tournament netting eight goals in five games, dedicated the trophy to the people of Bangladesh.
Krishna Rani scored the second goal for Bangladesh in the 42nd minute, following Shamsunnahar Jr’s opener in the 14th minute. After taking a 2-0 lead in the first half on a rain-soaked pitch and in front of a capacity crowd, Bangladesh came under tremendous pressure from the hosts, who pulled one back in the 70th minute through a powerful diagonal attempt. Bangladesh ensured victory with another expert finish in the 77th minute.
Bangladesh team captain and skipper Sabina Khatun became the top scorer of the tournament with eight goals in the tournament. Unbeaten champions Bangladesh conceded only once in the tournament–Nepal’s consolation goal netted by Anita in the final–and scored 23 goals.
Bangladesh became champions in South Asian women’s football for the first time in the sixth edition, ending India’s reign of five successive titles. Hosts Nepal, meanwhile, had to contend with the runners-up trophy for the fifth time.
