Maldives beat Bhutan 3-1 in SAFF Championship

Maldives put up an impressive performance to beat Bhutan 3-1 in a South Asian Football Federation championship game at the Trivandrum International Stadium here on Thursday.

Ahmed Imaaz, Assadhulla Abdulla and Ali Ashfaq scored for Maldives while Tshering Dorji was the only one to get on the score sheet for Bhutan. Maldives were quick to control the game and push upfront at the start. 

The pressure led to the first goal as Imaaz easily found the back of the net with a sharp strike. But the left back had to put in the hard yards and overlap to get to the end of the pass. Jolted, Bhutan responded with a cracking goal in the 20th minute as Dorji equalised. The midfielder twisted and turned before finding the net with a fantastic finish.
