Dhaka, Mar 24 (PTI) India tasted their first defeat in the SAFF U-17 Women's Football Championship as they lost 0-1 to hosts Bangladesh at the BSSS Mostafa Kamal Stadium here on Friday.

India had an early chance through Pooja, who got on to a scuffed clearance and attempted to dink the keeper, but her effort went wide.

Chances were few and far between, but India's Shilji Shaji looked lively, making runs at the opposition defence. She made a dangerous foray into the Bangladesh box from the left at the half-hour mark, but was stopped in her tracks.
