Head Coach of Bangladesh Under-16 Women's National Football team Golam Rabbani Choton said, "We played against the world champions. My girls' were under pressure before they faced stronger North Korea. My girls could not take pressure in the proper time. So, the difference of goal was big. My girls could not perform their usual football. Our goalkeeper conceded some funny goals. So, our team suffered a massive defeat."
Choton said, " Japan are favourites. My girls are prepared to present their best football."
Japan showed their capability after thrashing Japan by 5-0 goals in their first match.
