Bangladesh hit Pakistan for six at SAFF Women’s Championship

28

After a gutsy performance in their opening match against India, Pakistan failed to rise to the challenge against Bangladesh in their second Group ‘A’ match at the SAFF Women’s Championship.

This was a humbling defeat, the 6-0 scoreline laying bare that the Pakistan women’s team has a lot of catching up to do against the region’s top teams after being international pariahs for eight years.

An institutional crisis in the Pakistan Football Federation has impacted women’s football in the country and the national team made their first inter-national appearance since 2014 against India on Wednesday where they put up a brave defensive performance, only losing 3-0.—Agencies
