Captain Sabina Khatun said that even though Nepal narrowed the gap in the second half, the team's confidence was not strained.

70 minutes into the match, Anita Basnet's goal made Nepal 2-1. Dasaratha's gallery roared with shouts of supporters. Later, Bangladesh took the gap to two goals by scoring again. At that time, many people saw the title in their hands. However, captain Sabina Khatun said that after the end of the 90-minute game, she only felt that the title would be in their hands this time.

Bangladesh clinched its maiden Women's SAFF Championship title by defeating hosts Nepal 3-1 in a thrilling final at the Dasharath Stadium in Kathmandu on Monday. Krishna Rani Sarkar spread the light of the pair of goals. The other goal was scored by Shamsunnahar Jr.

On the field, and the supporters were all in favor of Nepal. The supporters continued to motivate the team which was lagging behind in the beginning. The hosts also got a comeback goal. But Sabina said they were not at all impressed by Nepal's goal.

“When we conceded a goal, it felt like a fight. Such a high voltage match, attacking and counter-attacking from both sides, it seemed like anything could happen. The coach had already said that such incidents happen in the match. This is normal, but the match cannot be lost. When the ninety minutes were over, with four minutes of extra time, it was like, no…it's going to happen now.”
