‘This trophy belongs to 18 crore people of Bangladesh,’ says Sabina
Hundreds of media personnel as well as football fans and people in general, thronged the airport to have a glimpse of the tigresses.
Sabina said she felt proud to see that people of the country love them so much. “We are grateful to them to give us a heartiest welcome in such a grand manner.”
The team members later boarded an open-top double-deck bus which paraded through the streets of Dhaka before reaching the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) House at Arambagh in Motijheel, where they will be accorded a reception by BFF president Kazi Salahuddin.
Sabina expressed her gratitude to BFF and other members.
“There has been a lot of work done on women’s football since 2012. This success is a result of the hard work that has been put in the last five-six years. The biggest contributor to this success is Bangladesh Football Federation and its president Kazi Salahuddin,” said Sabina.
