Bangladesh head coach Jamie Day blasted his charges for not finishing in front of goal following their tame 3-0 loss against Burundi in the second semi-final of the Bangabandhu Gold Cup at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Thursday.

The two sides almost enjoyed the same number of chances but Burundi went through to the final thanks to the efficiency of their attackers, as opposed to the profligacy of the Bangladesh forwards.

“We created a lot of chances, probably more than Burundi or the same as Burundi, but the difference is they scored three and we didn’t. It’s always been issue of scoring goals as we can’t score the chances we create,” said a disappointed Day after the game.

“We had one-on-one, we had open goals, free headers, hitting the crossbar and sideposts but couldn’t score. So that is the disappointing thing throughout the game. If we want to get better we have to start scoring goals.”
