05 July 2017
U-16 Bangladesh Women’s National Team held a training camp from Sunday 18 to Saturday 24 June at J-GREEN Sakai in Osaka.
Their camp in Japan was the second time this year following a training camp at the same facility in January. For the purpose of strengthening the team prior to the AFC U-16 Women's Championship 2017 which will be held in Thailand this September, they had three matches during their stay.
The match results are as follows.
19 June(Mon.) vs Osaka Kaisei Gakuen High School ● 2-4 (1-1)
21 June(Wed.) vs Academy Sakai ● 0-5 (0-1)
23 June(Fri.) vs Osaka-Seisho High School ○ 3-1 (1-0)
On their last day of the camp on Saturday 24th, sightseeing of Dotobori in Osaka was scheduled and the players showed a relaxed look different from the one on the pitch.
Golam Robbani Choton, Head Coach
This was our second visit to Japan, and I was impressed again by the warm and unchanged hospitality of the Japanese people. They prepared a special meal catered to our needs and a late supper for our staff during Ramadan. The pitch condition was excellent, and the players spent a fruitful time training and having test matches in the best environment possible. Japanese players have excellent pace and their ball controlling skills were first-rate as well. They played football of the highest quality. Our national team improved significantly as they played three training matches. I believe we accomplished a lot as a team as well. I am very grateful to the staff of J-GREEN Sakai and Dream Camp and the JFA for organising and hosting such a wonderful camp.
Paul Smalley, Assistant Coach
We are grateful to the staff of J-GREEN Sakai and Dream camp for providing us with meals and services at the first-rate facility and environment. There are only few specialised football facilities of such high quality in Bangladesh. It was surely a valuable experience for our players as well. In the training match with JFA Academy Sakai, we conceded quite a few goals, but the performance of our players improved significantly after this game and we were able to come up with a win in the proceeding match with Osaka-Seisho High School. We are looking to capitalise on this experience and continue our daily training in order for us to display our best performance at the AFC U-16 Women's Championship 2017 this September.
I was surprised by the wonderful facilities at J-GREEN Sakai in our last visit and this time their staff prepared ‘chicken curry” every day for our national team. Thanks to their hospitality, we were able to have meals that are no different from the one we normally have in Bangladesh. I would like to express my gratitude to the staff of the facilities.

I was surprised by the high football level of the Japanese players. There were many occasions where they connected direct passes well and we had a difficult time robbing the ball from them. However, we also created many chances and I was able to score the opening goal in the training match against Osaka-Seisho High School as well. Thanks to this training camp, we can now face the AFC U-16 Women's Championship 2017 in September with confidence.
