National football team’s head coach Jamie Day on Thursday arrived in Dhaka from the UK to join the ongoing national team’s training camp ahead of the FIFA friendlies against Nepal.
Along with head coach Day, two other foreign coaching staff, goalkeeping coach Les Cleevely and assistant coach Stuart Watkiss, and team captain Jamal Bhuyan also arrived in the country.
Bangladesh national football team are scheduled to play two international friendlies against Nepal on November 13 and 17 at Bangabandhu National Stadium.
Head coach Jamie Day through a video message said that the main focus would be on getting football back in Bangladesh.
The English born Bangladesh national team’s head coach Jamie hoped that these two matches against Nepal would lay the foundation for more matches in the coming year.
He said it’s good to get the boys back training after such a long period of time and his focus is not only winning the games but also getting football back in Bangladesh.
Earlier, the national team’s training camp began on October 23 last under the supervision of assistant coach Masud Parvez Kaiser after Bangladesh Football Federation announced the 36-member preliminary squad against the visiting Nepal football team.
