Bangladesh began their campaign at the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) U-15 Women’s Championship on a winning note.

They defeated host Bhutan impressively with a 2-0 victory, according to reports.

The match was played at the Changlimithang Stadium in Thimphu on Wednesday.

Bangladesh exhibited dominance from the very first whistle.

They scrored the first goal in the 20th minute when Shaheda Akter rifled her shot into the net.

Rosina Akter doubled the lead in the 31st minute.

Bangladesh will play their second match on Friday against Nepal, who started the tournament with a 4-1 defeat to defending champions India in the other match on Wednesday.

Notably in the 2017, Bangladesh had won the title defeating Bhutan 3-0.

In the next edition in 2018, Bhutan conceded a 5-0 defeat to runners-up Bangladesh in the league stages.
