Bangladesh Under -15 boys clinched SAFF title beating Pakistan 3-2 in penalty shootouts at Kathmandu today.

After full time the teams were tied at 1-1 and Bangladesh brought on goalkeeper Mehedi Hasan for the penalties and following on from his effort against India, he turned out to be the hero once again, saving three penalties.

Bangladesh had taken the lead in the 25th minute after a corner kick was headed into his own net by a Pakistani defender. However, in the second half, a needless challenge from left-back Helal Ahmed, resulted in a penalty for Pakistan which they duly took advantage of as Moheb Ullah dispatched it in to the net.
