In all, a total of 31 footballers were supposed to go to the camp at Sarah Resort in Gazipur in three phases. But since 9 footballers were affected by Corona in two days, the question naturally arises whether any new player will be taken? Nothing is known about this yet. However, in such a situation, the emphasis should be on hygiene, said Bangladesh coach Jamie Day.

Bangladesh will start the World Cup qualifiers again in October 8 with a match against Afghanistan in Sylhet. The first two weeks of the camp, which starts tomorrow, will be practiced in small groups.
