The women’s football team from Bangladesh was eliminated from the Asian Games after suffering a second consecutive loss, this time against Vietnam by a score of 6-1 at the Wenzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium on Monday.
The ladies who were wearing red and green came into the match against Vietnam with the intention of putting on a better performance than they did against Japan, who had defeated Nepal 8-0 in their first match. Vietnam had defeated Nepal 2-0 in their first encounter.
Even though the charges of Saiful Bari Titu performed far better than they had against Japan, they were still unable to prevent Vietnam from piling on the goals. Vietnam, a team that competed in the most recent edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, took a 2-0 lead into halftime before scoring four more goals in the second half.
“The scoreline does not justify the performance put in by the girls,” stated the head coach, Saiful Bari Titu. The first goal we let up was the result of a careless error, and the second was scored after a long ball was sent into the box.
“Right from the beginning of the second half, we pushed high, and as a result, Vietnam was obliged to defend in a deeper position. We also had a stronger enthusiasm for the ball, improved passing and throwing, and even produced a few opportunities, but we were unable to capitalize on any of them.
“What we were unable to do against Japan, we were able to accomplish against Vietnam. Even Nepal was unable to accomplish what we accomplished against Vietnam. However, the final score does not accurately represent the girls’ actual performance, as Titu pointed out.
