Bangladesh created some of the best chances during their home tie against Laos on Tuesday but all went in vain due to multiple misfiring efforts that saw the match end in a goalless draw. Head coach Jamie Day, however, seemed content with the side’s finishing ability which he said has improved over the last few months.

The national team had many ups and downs over the last decade but the team’s performance has improved in recent times. The defence looked better in shape and there has been some young energetic wingers coming in as well, but the strikers continued to show lack of quality in front of the goal.

Against Laos at home, lone striker Nabib Newaz Ziban alone missed three chances from inside the box. It was winger Rabiul Hasan’s goals that gave Bangladesh a couple of wins over Laos and Cambodia away from home in the last three months.

“It [finishing] has improved, we scored three goals [during practice matches] in Thailand and scored in nearly every game we have played,” said Day to Dhaka Tribune yesterday. “All we can do is keep working on it in training. I think they have all improved. Rabiul has scored two in last three matches which has been good. They all need to focus because they need to play well to keep their place in the national team,” said the British coach.

Bangladesh captain Jamal Bhuiyan wants his forwards to get prepared before the tougher opponents in the second round of the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 Preliminary Joint Qualification later this year.

“We were unlucky to miss many chances so we have to work on it. We don’t have a complete goal scorer in the last 10-15 years. It’s tough. We will get strong opponents in the next stage, we have to be careful about It.” said Jamal yesterday.
