In the previous edition that kicked off on January 18 last year, as many as six local players managed to score in the six matches of the first round

The opening round of the Bangladesh Premier League concluded Sunday, but local players are yet to get on the scoresheet.

A total six matches have been played at four different venues over four days, with nine goals recorded, so far.

In the previous edition that kicked off on January 18 last year, as many as six local players managed to score in the six matches of the first round. 

The scorers included Farhad Ahmed Shitol of Abahani, Javed Khan and Mahbub Nayan of Saif Sporting, as well as Faysal Ahmed of Rahmatganj. Abahani winger Rubel Miya scored the first goal of the BPL 2019.

This time, Bashundhara Kings captain Daniel Colindres (Costa Rica) scored the first goal in their inaugural game against Uttar Baridhara on Thursday, while Nigerian Chindedu Mathew, Sunday Chizoba, Obi Moneke, Raphael Onwrebe, Ivorian Didier Charles, Uzbekistan’s Edgar Bernhardt, Otabek Validjanov, Rwandan Emere Bayisenge are the other scorers.

The BFF has allowed the clubs to register a maximum five foreign players, most of whom are being fielded as strikers by their respective sides. Bangladesh national football team head coach Jamie Day has been left disgruntled by the lack of opportunities for local forwards in their regular position at the club level.

When asked if the lack of local scorers is concerning ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan in Sylhet next month, Day said:  “Nothing will change. The team will fight and give their best like they always do, but scoring will still be an issue.”
