Sabina given hero’s welcome on return to hometown Satkhira

Skipper Sabina Khatun, who led the Bangladesh national women’s football team to its maiden SAFF Women’s Football Championship triumph, was given a warm reception to her hometown of Satkhira on Friday (Sep 23). 

Sabina was received by the Satkhira District Sport Association office-bearers around 10:40am at the Circuit House, where large number of people were already waiting to get a glimpse of her. 

On September 19, Bangladesh created history as they beat Nepal by 3-1 in the final match in Kathmandu to win the SAFF Women’s Championship title for the first time.

Bangladesh, previously a finalist in 2016, romped to their second final of the regional meet crushing Bhutan 8-0 goals in the first semi-final last Friday. Nepal, losing finalists on four previous occasions, booked their seats by eliminating India, champions of all five previous editions.
