Bangladesh's national women's team have scored four goals in the first half of the SAFF Women's Championship encounter against Pakistan in Kathmandu. The match is going on at the Dasharath Stadium in Kathmandu.
In the day's first match, Bangladesh took the lead in just the third minute. A rebound from an intended pass fell to Monika Chakma at the edge of the box, who then struck it first time into the back of the net.
Bangladesh then added another three in quick succession. Mosammat Jahan gave them a 2-0 lead in the 28th minute from a Sabina Khatun pass. It was Sabina Khatun's turn to pile on the misery for Pakistan. The Bangladesh skipper continued her fine form as they added two goals of her own in the 31st and 35th minutes of the match.
Sabina takes her international tally to 26 goals with two goals in the first half.
Bangladesh will qualify for the semifinals if they manage to win today. Later today, in the fourth match of group A, India will face the Maldives. That match will kick off at 5:30 PM.
