Bhutan rout SL 5-0

Sri Lanka received a humiliating 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Bhutan in their South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Girls’ Under-17 encounter played at the Dasharath Stadium in Nepal yesterday. After conceding just a solitary goal to their opponents in the first half, Sri Lanka completely lost their way as Bhutan added four more goals in the second half to complete a comprehensive win in this Group ‘B’ fixture. Sri Lanka kept their opponents quiet for most of the initial stages of the game before Namgyel Dema eventually broke the deadlock in the 42nd minute.

Sri Lanka’s chances of a comeback was completely dashed when Deki Lhazom struck twice in the 50th and 64th minute to put Bhutan in a commanding position.

Thereafter, Tshering Lhaden and Galey Wangmo piled on more misery on the Sri Lankan team while scoring a goal each in the 85th and 89th minute respectively.
