Facing India gives Bangladeshi extra inspiration in any sports and when it is football things get even more challenging as the men’s national team is 82 steps behind in FIFA ranking to their stronger neighbours.

However, the men in red and green once again proved their grit and determination as they resisted the mighty opponents against all the odds and one teen-ager emerged as the national hero.

Yeasin Arafat, the talented 18-year full-back, made the country ecstatic when he scored the late equalizer on Monday at Male National Stadium despite the side playing with one less man. 

And the player from Narayanganj expressed his satisfaction to media on Tuesday.

“I knew I would score goal if I get chance. That’s what happened. Now the team has got one point thanks to my goal. I am extremely happy,” said Yeasin.

Yeasin also acknowledged the fact of getting extra motivation when facing India. He scored against India in the under-18 SAFF Championship final although his side ultimately lost by 2-1. 

“I knew India is a tough team. But I was not scared. I scored against them earlier. Moreover, I also played against strong Oman in the World Cup qualifier,” added Yeasin.

The teenager also said he is very confident of doing well in Bangladesh’s next game against hosts Maldives on Thursday.
