'Felt the breeze of Bengal after many days'
Member of Bangladesh's SAFF Women's Championship-winning team, Krishna Rani Sarkar, was delighted to have returned home on Wednesday after their successful SAFF campaign.
Just minutes after reaching Dhaka, a post from Krishna Rani Sarkar's official Facebook page read: "Felt the breeze of Bengal after many days."
Bangladesh women footballers left the country for Kathmandu on September 3. They clinched their maiden SAFF Women's Championship title by beating hosts Nepal 3-1 in the tournament's final in Kathmandu last Monday. Krishna Rani scored a brace in the final.
The champions touched down at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at around 1:46pm today.
The government and Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) prepared an open-top bus for the homecoming of the women in red and green. The bus will be taking the champions from the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport to the BFF House in Motijheel.
