Md. Noor Alam, (Gopalpur) Tangail: 16,000 Nepalese spectators shouted 'Nepal, Nepal' in no time. In one corner of the gallery, a few Bengalis with red and green flags shouted 'Bangladesh, Bangladesh' with joy. Few of these Bengalis witnessed the birth of an unparalleled history of women's football in Bangladesh. The men's football team won the first clean sheet in Bangladesh's football history in 2003. It is the only clear title in men's football so far. The women's football team was born much later. The group of women who were stumbling now shared the glory of the boys. Gholam Rabbani Chotan's team won the South Asian title by defeating Nepal 3-1 in only their second final in SAFF history. Shamsunnahar Junior scored the first goal in the dream final. Krishna Rani Sarkar wrote his name in history by scoring the next two goals. Bangladesh's contribution cannot be underestimated with this one final. The field of Nepal, the audience of Nepal and the statistics of their invincibility against Bangladesh - the women footballers of Bangladesh have stunned everything in Dashrath Rangshala today. Sabina's match against Nepal will also witness the rise of Bangladesh in women's football in South Asia from age-based football to national level. Sabina-Krishna had already given the message of fulfilling the dream by losing India. In order to maintain their dominance, Nepal had to defeat the girls in red and green in front of their visitors. Nepal's attacking football, pressure from the home crowd - nothing could stop the indomitable girls. Sabinara confirmed to return to the country with the Safar trophy in hand. Bangladesh attacked from the first minute of the match at Dasarath Stadium in Kathmandu. Nepal goalkeeper Anjila Subba blocked Maria Manda's long-range shot from outside the box. Bangladesh lost Sirat Jahan Sapna within 10 minutes of the start of the game. Swapna, who scored 4 goals in the tournament, was picked up by coach Golam Rabbani Chotan as she did not feel comfortable even though she came down to play in the final with an injury. Shamsunnahar junior entered the field in place of Swapna. Shamsunnahar junior led Bangladesh on the field. In the 14th minute, Bangladesh's 'Super Sub' Shamsunnahar sent the ball over the Nepali goalkeeper's head with a right-footed volley from Manika Chakma's cross. With this goal, the host Nepal conceded a goal for the first time in the tournament. After conceding the goal, a wave of attack by the Nepali forwards hit the Bangladesh half. Bangladeshi goalkeeper Rupana Chakma and the defenders faced a tough test for the first time in the entire tournament. Although shaky in some cases, Rupana kept their net clean against Nepal's attack. Bangladesh goalkeeper blocked Anita Basnet's free-kick in the 35th minute. In the next minute, defender Masura Parveen cleared the ball from the goal line. In the 42nd minute, Krishna Rani Sarkar gave Bangladesh the lead for the second time by stunning the 16,000 Nepali spectators of Dashrath. Captain Sabina Khatun took advantage of a mistake by the Nepali defenders and sent the ball to Krishna from outside the box. Krishna found the opposing goalkeeper unguarded and sent the ball over his head into the net. After the break, Savitra Bhandari, the best star of Nepal, entered the field in the 45th minute. As soon as Savitra returned, Nepal attacked in the Bangladesh half. Bangladesh narrowly escaped in 52 minutes.
