It rained goals at the Changlimithang Stadium yesterday evening.
The under-15 national women’s team were beaten 10-1 by the defending champions India.
In a game that was completely dominated by the Indians, Bhutan had little to offer. The first goal came in the eighth minute.
However, Sangay Wangmo’s equaliser in the ninth minute gave hope to the home crowd who had assembled in mass.
The hope was short-lived as India scored their second in the 15th minute. Three more followed before the half-time.
India kept her dominance as they scored five more in the second half. The champions dominated the game, physically and tactically.
Furious audiences started leaving the once packed stadium. More than half of the crowd had left when a blackout interrupted the match in the 28th minute.
Coach Yeshi Wangchuk was disappointed.
In an earlier interview, the coach said that it would be tough going against the defending champions.
“India is an undefeated team in this competition. However, we expect to give them a tough competition. Even if we lose, we’ll try to keep the goal difference minimal,” he said.
Meanwhile, despite a better performance during the match against Bangladesh, team Bhutan lost by two goals on October 9.
In the earlier game yesterday, Bangladesh humbled Nepal 2-1.
The defending champions, India thrashed Nepal 4-1 in the opening match on October 9 and currently sit at the top of the table with six points.
Bangladesh also won both their games against Bhutan and Nepal and is currently at the second place with six points.
Bhutan will play Nepal at 6pm while India will take on Bangladesh at 3pm tomorrow at the Changlimithang Stadium.
