Dhaka: Bangladesh national women’s team skipper Sabina Khatun has flown to India to play in the Indian Women’s League for the second straight year.
Sabina has signed a contract with Gokulam Kerala FC, a football club based in India’s Kerala state, this year.
Even though the league has already started, Gokulam Kerala made to effort to get Sabina in their team since she had displayed her outstanding football charisma in the same league playing for Tamil Nadu club Sethu FC last year where she was accompanied by her national teammate Krishna Rani Sarkar.
The Indian Women’s League has already rolled on the ground on Sunday, May 5 at Ludhiana Guru Nanak Stadium, Punjab. A total of 14 teams are participating in this season of the tournament.
Sabina’s team Gokulam Kerala FC also played their first match against Rising Student’s Club in the tournament opener.
The club will face their other group stage contenders on May 7, 9, 11, 15 and 17.
Gokulam Kerala FC has signed the contract with Sabina till May 22, the final day of the league.
Sabina left Dhaka for Kerala at 8pm on Monday. She’ll soon join her team and do what she does best – playing football and scoring goals.
The Bangladesh captain will look to help her club through to the semifinal round what she did once last year.
While playing for Sethu FC in the last edition of the tournament, Bangladesh’s most shining woman football star scored seven goals in the six group stage matches.
Football fans from both Bangladesh and India are now eagerly waiting to enjoy the show that Sabina displays with her magical feet.
