Bhutan is always considered as one of the underdog team in the tournament but they were never underestimated by any team.
Bhutan registered one of the biggest win in the history of women’s football after they humbled the islander Sri Lanka 6-0 in the league round. But Bhutan lost to the mighty Indian 1-0 in the league round but they qualified for the semi-final after defeating Sri Lanka.
One of the most beautiful moments in this tournament was the huge support of the local spectators which was unexpected at the same time it was really overwhelming. On average over 3000 spectators came to support the girls which was huge boost for the girls and also support for women in sports.
Although Bhutan went down fighting Bangladesh 5-0 in semi-final against the defending Champion they already won the heart of Bhutan. People came flooding for the semi-final with flags and drums which was a lifetime experience for the girls.
Tears were shed and they will live another day to fight for it when they meet Nepal for the next game for 3rd position.
