The residential training camp of the national football team for the two ensuing international soccer tournaments began on Tuesday afternoon at the BKSP in Savar, reports UNB.

Twenty-three booters out of the preliminarily selected 28 joined the training camp today (Tuesday) at the national sports training institute, BKSP, under new coach and former national defender Mohammad Abu Yousuf.

Zahid Hossain and Zumratul Hossain Mithu of Mohammedan SC and Abul Hossain of Abahani Limited did not join on Tuesday while national skipper Hasan al Mamun and Zahed Parvez Chowdhury informed that they would join the camp today (Wednesday).

After reaching the BKSP at noon today, national players made light practice in the afternoon. The residential camp will continue until the team’s departure in May for Kyrgyzstan to take part in the AFC Challenge Cup.

The full-fledged training program of the team begins today (Wednesday) in two sessions — 7am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm. Earlier, on March 22, Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) initially picked-up 28 booters to form Bangladesh national team for the two upcoming international meets.

Bangladesh will take part in the qualifying round of the AFC Challenge Cup to be held May 5-10 in Kyrgyzstan, and the SAFF Championship on June 3-14, to be co-hosted by Sri Lanka and Maldives. In the AFC Challenge Cup, Bangladesh have been placed in Group C with Afghanistan, Laos and hosts Kyrgyzstan.

Bangladesh will play Afghanistan on May 5, Laos on May 7 and hosts Kyrgyzstan on May 9, all at the Bishkek Central Stadium. In the 5th SAFF Championship, Bangladesh have been placed in Group B with Afghanistan, Bhutan and co-host Sri Lanka.
