“We’ve taken good preparation for the championship ….. tomorrow is the final exam and we want to pass the final exam,” Jamal said during the team’s practice session today (Wednesday) held at Karnataka State Football Association.
Off course we want to win against Lebanon but we’ll be happy if we able to snatch at least one point against them (Lebanon), the Bangladesh skipper added.
Jamal said: “Lebanon is up in ranking and tough rival we’ll be happy with one point but our target is full three points, we know it’ll not going to be an easy task because Lebanon is also a tough rival.”
The midfielder said Lebanon played four matches in the last twelve days and obviously they are a bit tired now. In this case, we’ll take the advantage on the Thursday’s match.
Bangladesh head coach Javier Cabrera said although Lebanon is strong rival but his boys would give hundred percent efforts on the field.
