3 national football coaches, captain Jamal Bhuiyan arrive in Dhaka

The British Head Coach of Bangladesh National Football team Jamie Day accompanied by Assistant coach Stuart Watkiss and newly-appointed goalkeeping coach Les Cleevely arrived in Dhaka on Thursday ahead of next month’s FIFA International friendly against Nepal.

Nepali players are expected to arrive here on November 5 to play two FIFA international friendlies with hosts Bangladesh on November 13 and 17 at Bangabandhu National Stadium.

With the match, Bangladesh are going to return to international football after about 10 months.

Meanwhile, Denmark-based captain of Bangladesh national football team Jamal Bhuiyan also reached Dhaka Thursday morning to join the national team.

But, the three English coaches and captain Jamal will have to undergo quarantine before joining the training camp.

Besides, the Finland-based footballer of the Bashundhara Kings Tariq Raihan Kazi, who earned the first call in the Bangladesh national squad, is already in the capital and joined the national camp on Thursday after quarantine.

Meanwhile, the preliminary training camp of the national football team began last Saturday under the local coaches.
