Chinese Taipei crush Kyrgyzstan

Chinese Taipei thrashed Kyrgyzstan 7-1 in the opening match of Group C Qualifiers of AFC U-16 Women's Championship at Bangabandhu National Stadium on Saturday.

The Chinese Taipei team coached by Chang Li-Chuan and managed by Huang Chen Wei called all the shots from the onset and scored five goals in the first half. In the second half, Chinese Taipei consolidated their position by adding two more before the final whistle. Kyrgyzstan managed a consolation goal for their efforts under the scorching sun at Dhaka.

Chinese Taipei want to qualifying for the eight-team final as they have come here with six-months of preparation alongside playing six practice matches in Japan.

“Our target is to qualify for the finals by winning this group and to achieve our target, we have taken a long preparation and played some good practice matches against teams in Japan,” said Chinese Taipei Assistant coach Kao Tsai Hu.

The Bangladesh under-16 women's team will hope to fulfil their dream in the AFC U-16 Women's Championship Qualifiers, providing that they defeat group favourites Iran at 6:00 pm today.
