Dhaka, 29 Feb  - Bangladesh U-16 women's national football team head coach Saiful Bari Titu said his girls are trying to adapt to the environment before their first match against Nepal of the SAFF U-16 Women's Championship.

The girls also made their second day training session Thursday at match venue ANFA Complex in Kathmandu, according to a message received here today.

The coach said he is quite satisfied for the effort as the way the girls are trying to adapt.

Most of the players of the team are unfamiliar of the venue and it's good for them to get to know ground before the first match, he added.

Asked about his plan with the first match against Nepal, Titu said there is nothing to know about Nepal rather the girls are only focusing on their own plan.

Titu admitted that the home side will obviously get the support from the crowds, but his girls are prepared to take the challenge. 

Earlier, on Wednesday last Bangladesh reached Nepal to participate in the four-nation SAFF U-16 Championship which will be held from March 1-10 in Nepal.

Bangladesh, who won the title of the SAFF championship in 2017, will start their tournament campaign taking on Nepal on March 2 before facing India on March 5. The girls in red and green will play their ultimate match against Bhutan on March 8 before the title-deciding final match scheduled to be held on March 10.

All the matches will be held at ANFA Complex in Kathmandu.
