Arriving in Qatar, the footballers went down to practice tomorrow. The good news is that Jamie Day has got everyone on the team in that practice. Because everyone has been negative in the corona test. There was no problem for Jamal Bhuiyan to fall on the field.
The national football team set foot in Doha at noon yesterday. After completing all the formalities at the airport, arrive at the hotel in the afternoon. In the evening every member of the team is tested for corona. That report came tomorrow afternoon. Earlier, the players did stretching at the hotel. After receiving a negative report, their field practice started in the afternoon. Bangladesh will play the last three World Cup qualifiers against Afghanistan, India and Oman on June 3, 6 and 15 in Qatar respectively.
The footballers played some matches in the second round of the league last month after returning from a tri-nation tournament in Nepal in March. The World Cup qualifiers were initially scheduled to be held in Qatar and later in Saudi Arabia, but this did not happen. In the end, Jamie’s team went to Qatar after training in Dhaka and playing a warm-up match against Sheikh Jamal. The national team drew 2-2 in the only match against Jamal. Jamie played in a 5-4-1 formation with three center backs in that match. Jamie went to this formula in the second half to handle the opponent after falling behind by two goals in the final of the tri-nation tournament in Nepal. As it was tested in the preparation match, it is assumed that the Bangladesh coach has taken a plan to stop the opponent in Qatar as well.
