Booters to get little time to take preparation for two friendlies

The national booters will get little time to take preparation as the national team’s residential training camp for the two FIFA friendlies will begin from March 18 in Dhaka.

The decision has been taken at a national teams committee’s virtual meeting held today (Thursday) with its chairman and Bangladesh Football Federation’s (BFF) vice president and national teams committee’s chairman Kazi Nabil Ahmed, MP, in the presided over the meeting.

After the meeting, National teams committee’s chairman through a virtual press conference said the 9th round of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League will end on March 18.

Then the national team’s camp will start. The team will leave Dhaka for the Maldives on March 22 and play the first FIFA friendly match against the hosts on March 24. On the following day, the team would return and go straight to Sylhet, where the national team would play another friendly against Mongolia on March 29.

The national team’s new Spanish coach Javier Cabrera, who is going to make his debut in the national team dugout, will get little time to prepare the national booters for the two friendly matches.

Nabil however does not see any problem in the little preparation of the team for the two matches.

He said the league is going on and the new coach is watching the league matches.

He also visits the clubs and meets with the players. These are part of his works. Players would also have better fitness due to playing in the league. So there is no need for the long preparation for the two friendliness.

“We are expecting good results from the first assignment of the new coach,” said Kazi Nabil Ahmed by adding that our result will be good in two matches. Nabil informed that the preliminary squad of the national team will be
announced by March 15.
