Bangkok: Two established Southeast Asian sides, an ambitious Chinese Taipei and the youngest team at the tournament will kick off Group B action on the opening day of the AFC Women’s Futsal Championship Thailand 2018.
MALAYSIA v BANGLADESH
Of the seven nations making their AFC Women’s Futsal Championship debut at Thailand 2018, Bangladesh are perhaps the team with the most to learn.
Led by head coach Golam Robbani Choton, the South Asians will arrive for their Matchday One encounter with Malaysia with just one player over the age of 19, in a squad which lacks competitive futsal experience.
Almost all of the players representing Bangladesh in Bangkok are drawn from the 11-a-side team that featured in the AFC U-16 Championships 2017, also coached by Choton, with 24-year-old Sabina Katun the sole senior player.
