Choton said the host would get the home support but he is confident in his team's quality. "Playing against the host team is always difficult, but we are confident for the final", said Choton," he said further.

Captain Sabina Khatun, who has scored the highest eight goals in the tournament so far said that the team is ready for the final.

Bangladesh never have won against Nepal in the history of the SAFF Championship. In the last three meetings in the Championship, Nepal have managed to defeat Bangladesh on all three occasions. But, this is a different Bangladesh team which looks like a really improved side this time.

Their performance against India is evidence of this fact. The girls in red and green are looking forward to having their hands on the trophy for the first time.
