Pakistan Women’s Football Team Confident To Win Against Bangladesh
However, Pakistan — playing its first international tournament since 2014 — is looking beyond the scoreline of the previous game and is confident ahead of the game.
The players spent more than two hours in training to prepare themselves for the game against Bangladesh — the runner-up of the 2016 edition and three times semi-finalists.
Malika-e-Noor, the vice-captain of the Pakistan team said that the team received confidence from the way it played against India, so the players are now focused on their game against Bangladesh.
“We were better than before against India, it gave us confidence, and I am sure we’ll continue producing better results in the next games,” she said.
“We are now ready to take on Bangladesh,” the senior-most player in the squad said.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s high commissioner in Nepal hosted a reception in honour of visiting Pakistan’s women’s football team.
