Bangladesh defeated Nepal 3-1 in the SAFF U-20 Women's Championship match on Friday.
Most Aklima Khatun gave Bangladesh the lead after just three minutes at Bir Sherestha Shaheed Shipahi Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Dhaka. Shaheda Akter Ripa doubled the advantage in the 13 before Manmaya Damai halved the deficit in the 24th minute.
Nepal pressed on for an equalizer against the hosts nation but were unable to break them down. Bangladesh, instead, added a third in the added minutes of the game through Akter Ripa.
Nepal will now play their second match against Bhutan on Sunday. Bhutan had lost the tournament inaugural match against India by 12-0.
