Bangladesh scripted history on Thursday after crushing higher-ranked Malaysia national women's team 6-0 in the first match of the two-match FIFA international women's football series, reports UNB.

Bangladesh dominated the first half 4-0 at the Bir Sreshtho Shaheed Sepoy Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Dhaka's Kamalapur.

For them, Ankhi Khatun scored two; captain Sabina Khatun, Siraj Jahan Swapna, Monika Chakma, and N Krishna Rani Sarkar one each.

Ankhi put Bangladesh into the lead in the sixth minute. Sabina doubled it in the 26th (2-0).
