Bhutan Times - - Home - Sonam Wangmo

Bhutan on 10 Oc­to­ber won 3-1 against Bangladesh in the sec­ond leg of AFC Asian Cup 2019. Bhutan’s team was led by Ger­man Coach Torsten Soit­tler.

The match started at 6 pm sharp to the roar­ing sheers and sounds of drums and whis­tles from the Bhutanese fans. Bhutan’s na­tional flag was seen be­ing waved in the mid­dle of the crowd when Bhutan’s de­fender Jigme Tsh­er­ing Dorji scored the first goal against Bangladesh.

Den­drup Gyel­s­then, 21, said, he was con­fi­dent to take over, adding that Bangladesh’s low level of con­fi­dence was an ad­di­tional op­por­tu­nity to gain high level of pos­i­tive at­ti­tude on the Bhutanese side. He said what­ever the sit­u­a­tion or con­di­tion, “win­ning” is im­por­tant dur­ing such a com­pe­ti­tion.

The sec­ond goal against Bangladesh came within half an hour of the first goal and that gave the Bhutanese side a new boost of en­ergy and con­fi­dence.

Be­fore the match started, Bel­gium Coach to Bangladesh said be­cause of the weather his play­ers would face dif­fi­cul­ties. He added that it would have been bet­ter if there was more than a week for the play­ers to adapt to the new weather con­di­tion.

Kin­ley, 24, came to watch the match all the way from Paro. He said he wasn’t sat­is­fied with live broad­cast by Bhutan Broad­cast­ing Ser­vice. He said he was go­ing back home fully sat­is­fied.

Bhutan now moves into the next round of the AFC Asian Cup qual­i­fiers.
