Fitness was a concern due to short time frame to get ready after the long pandemic break but Jamal is content with 40 days’ preparation

Jamal Bhuiyan has rarely talked about his target of being anything other than a win during any pre-match discussion before, but this time, the Bangladesh captain is targeting a point against Qatar away on the eve of the tough 2022 World Cup and 2023 Asian Cup joint qualifier.

“The aim is to get at least one point. Qatar are strong and the No 1 team in Asia so one point would be very good for our team. But of course, if we play well it will also be good,” said the Denmark-born star midfielder.

Fitness was a concern due to short time frame to get ready after the long pandemic break but Jamal is content with 40 days’ preparation.

“The team are now in very good shape. We have been practicing very hard in the last five weeks. We have played four matches. Fitness level is very good now and everyone is almost 100% fit.”

Defence is expected to play a big role against the host. 

Bangladesh head coach Jamie Day said his charges have to play extremely well to put on a good performance and make things difficult for Qatar when they take on the host Friday.

Jamal said they worked on their recent defensive errors during last week’s practice matches against Qatar Military SA and Lusail where they conceded four goals. 

“Everyone can do mistakes but we have to reduce and work on our mistakes. We have talked about those mistakes and we are prepared,” said Jamal.

The 30-year old also shared the recipe to follow on the pitch. 

“Everyone will have to play together, defend together and attack together. We are a team, not only a defender, midfielder or forward. We will work together. Hopefully you will see a good Bangladesh team,” said Jamal.
