DHAKA- Bangladesh national football team’s head coach Jamie Day said they would go forward with new plans next year after Asian Football Confederation (AFC) taking consent of FIFA postponed the joint qualifiers round-2 and Asian Cup 2023 that was scheduled for October-November this year.
“The games have been canceled. Obviously, we are disappointed with this decision but I feel it’s the right decision. The players’ health and safety come first. We have to go forward with new plans. I look forward to 2021 where we’ll have some really good games and make sure we’re ready to win these games,” Jamie said through a video message today.
