Abdul Awal, Thakurgaon: Bangladesh girls beat Nepal last September 19 at Kathmandu Dashrath Stadium. The women's football team became the clear champion after losing 3-1 and Sapna and Sohagi from Ranishankail upazila of Thakurgaon were the 2 players for that team. Sapna Rani and Sohagi Kisku, two elite players of Rangatungi United Promila Football Academy of Ranishankail Upazila of Thakurgaon, the northernmost district of the country, participated in this history-making game. On September 20, local people gathered at their house. Swapna Rani, who grew up in the sweaty caress of a laborer father in a hut, and Sohagi Kisku, who conquered the poverty of a farmer father, has become the wealth of the country today. Poor Swapna Rani's father, Niren Chandra, told reporters on Tuesday, "I have 3 daughters and 1 son, Swapna Rani is the youngest, she is a member of the national team today. player Not only poverty but once my family had to fight with religious prejudice. Many of them used to say that it is not right for girls to wear half pants and play football. Even getting them married will be difficult. But ignoring that obstacle, my daughter went to the playground every day. Rangatungi United Promilla Football Academy director former principal Tajul Islam bought his playing equipment boots, jersey, medicine and a bicycle to go to the field. I am very happy to be the champion today. Ipina Kisku, sister of Sohagi Kisku said, Bangladesh women's football team won today. My sister is there, we are all happy and Thakurgaon district residents are also proud. In this regard, Rangatungi United Promila Football Academy director former principal Tajul Islam told this correspondent that it is a matter of pride for us that the women's football team is the champion. I congratulate the Bangladesh team for this. This victory is a pride for us as well as a little more pride for Thakurgaon. Because Swapna and Sohagi are only two players in our district. Upazila Executive Officer Sohel Sultan Zurkar Nain Kabir Steve said, first of all congratulations to the Bangladesh football team. Also, we are proud of two players from this upazila who participated in the game for the national team. They will be felicitated when they come on vacation next October 5.
