Bangladesh captain Jamal Bhuiyan said they are targetting all three points against their sub-continent rival

Prior to their departure from Dhaka, head coach Jamie Day praised his charges for the performance against Asian champion Qatar and urged to repeat the same display against the 104th ranked Indians

Following a confident yet ultimately futile display against Qatar, the Bangladesh football team reached Kolkata Friday, ahead of their third Group E game against India in the World Cup and Asian Cup joint qualifiers, scheduled to be held Tuesday at Salt Lake Stadium. 

Prior to their departure from Dhaka, head coach Jamie Day praised his charges for the performance against Asian champion Qatar and urged to repeat the same display against the 104th ranked Indians.

Bangladesh captain Jamal Bhuiyan echoed the same sentiment and said they are targetting all three points against their sub-continent rival.

Defender Yeasin Khan, who missed a couple of gilt-edged chances against the Qataris, rued the wasted opportunities during Thursday’s clash at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.

Yeasin thanked the weekday crowd for coming in numbers and said the last time he saw a full house in a football match in Bangladesh was during the Bangabandhu Gold Cup last year in October.

Bangladesh, ranked a lowly 187th, will be eager to open their account after accumulating none in two matches so far while Qatar top the group with seven points from three games.

Second placed Oman have six points from two matches while Afghanistan are third with three points from as many games.

India, at fourth, have one point in two matches.
