Touhura double helps Bangladesh draw with Aussies in AFC U-16

Touhura double helps Bangladesh draw with Aussies in AFC U-16

Tohura Khatun scored a brace as Bangladesh U-16 women’s football shrugged off their previous indifference performance to earn a creditable 2-2 goal draw against strong Australia in their third and last Group A match of the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship yesterday at IPE Chonburi Stadium in Chonburi, Thailand.

In the day’s match, It was Bangladesh’s Tohura Khatun who gave her side a deserving lead in the 21st minute.

Australia had to wait a considerable time to restore parity as Claudia Mauren Mihocic scored the cherished equaliser for Australia in the 77th minute. But Tohura was not ready to bow down as she again put Bangladesh ahead scoring her second goal in the 78th minute while Paige Zois saved the Australian from total embarrassment as she levelled the score her second goal for Australia in the 80th minute of the match.

The women’s in red and green showed better display yesterday compared to their previous two matches.

Bangladesh took control of the first half of the match but in the second half they failed to keep the tempo which saw them leave the field with draw despite twice taking early lead.

Earlier, Bangladesh suffered a fighting solitary goal defeat to host Thailand in their Group A opening match but was dumped by strong Japan by 9-0 goals in their second group match.

In the last edition of this competition in 2017 Bangladesh women’s team went down to Australia by 2-3 after having lead.
