Bangladesh National Football Team has escaped an accident on their Oman-bound Biman Bangladesh flight.

The flight returned to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport after hovering in the sky for nearly an hour following a late departure on Sunday night.

The players were on their way to participate in the World Cup qualifying match against Oman scheduled to take place on Nov 14.

The flight started having electrical problems in the air.

“Our flight was at 9:45pm but it was delayed by almost two hours. The flight even hovered in the air for half an hour after take-off,” Bangladesh goalkeeper Ashraful Islam Rana posted on his Facebook page  on Monday.

“After a few moments of taking off, the captain of the flight made an announcement that we were going back to Dhaka because of some technical problem. Naturally, we all were scared,” he added.

However, the team eventually left for Muscat around 11:00am by BG021 flight of Biman.

Apart from the match, the team will also have a 10-day training camp in Muscat.

Bangladesh team is currently at the bottom of Group E with a single point from three games, but a dominating draw against India in Kolkata last month following a close 2-0 defeat against Qatar at home lifted the spirit of the footballers.
