Bangladesh smartly reached the final of the four-nation South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Under-15 Women’s Championship with an all-win record outplaying India by 3-0 goals in their last league match at Bir Shrestha Shaheed Sepoy Mohammad Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Kamalapur on 21 December.

The two neighbouring countries—hosts Bangladesh and India—will meet each other again in the final on Sunday at 2:00pm at the same venue.

In their last match, Bangladesh qualified for the title-deciding final securing full nine points from straight three matches while India booked a seat for the final collecting six points from three league outings.

Bangladesh and India have all-win six points each playing out two games apiece, but Indians are ahead of the host side by virtue of more goals as they started the campaign with 3-0 win against Bhutan while Bangladesh got 6-0 victory against Nepal.
