Bangladesh earn creditable draw against China 

HANGZHOU, China, Sept 24, 2023 (BSS)- Bangladesh Olympic football team earned 
a creditable draw against host China after the score line ended goalless in 
their last group A match of 19th Asian Games men's football held at Xiaoshan 
Sports Centre Stadium on Sunday. 

Perhaps even head coach Javier Cabrera could not have imagined that his boys 
would play impressive football in the last match. Before the match against 
China, many thought Bangladesh is going to concede big margin of defeat 
against China, who are 109 steps ahead than Bangladesh in the FIFA ranking, 
but in the field, the Bangladeshi footballers proved their worth forcing 
China to play goalless draw on their own soil.

The boys and red and green played impressive brand of football and fought 
neck to neck against the hosts till the final whistle. 

Bangladesh earlier eliminated from the group stage following their previous 
two matches defeat against Myanmar and India while China already confirmed 
their next round wining their previous group two matches. 

Earlier, Bangladesh Olympic football team lost a 1-0 goal defeat to Myanmar 
in their group opening match and again suffered an identical margin of 1-0 
goal defeat to India in their second match.
