Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) President Kazi Mohammad Salahuddin reached Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek Thursday to encourage the Bangladesh national football team.
The BFF president, Mahfuza Akhter Kiron – FIFA council member, BFF and AFC member – and BFF General Secretary Abu Nayem Sohag landed in Kyrgyzstan at 1:10pm Bangladesh time.
The national team is now Bishkek to play the "Tri-nation Cup 2021" with Palestine and hosts Kyrgyzstan.
Jamie Day's Bangladesh team will face Palestine on September 5 before taking on hosts Kyrgyzstan on September 7 in the tri-nation cup.
The touring Bangladesh team will also play a friendly match against hosts Kyrgyzstan U23 side on September 9 as part of their preparation for the SAFF Championship in the Maldives next October.
Earlier, the Bangladesh team started their practice session in Kyrgyzstan last Sunday at the Sports City Field in Kant city.
However, two new Bangladeshi-origin players of the team – forward Rahbar Wahed Khan from Canada and midfielder Nayb Md Tahmidul Islam from France – reached Bishkek last Monday and joined the national team's practice session.
