Bangladesh boys will have no room for error when they begin their Saff U-15 Championship campaign Friday against Bhutan at Kalyani Stadium in West Bengal, India.

Host India and Sri Lanka have already started their mission in style, beating Nepal and Bhutan respectively so a win for Bangladesh Friday will see them join the top two in the points table with maximum three points.

Among these five teams, only the top two will advance to the grand finale of the tournament’s sixth edition, scheduled to be held on August 31 at the same venue.

Bangladesh captain Rakibul Islam said on the eve of the clash that they will try to play attacking football against Bhutan and that there are no injury concerns in the squad.

He added, “Training was good. Hopefully we will play well today. We will try to represent Bangladesh in the best way possible.”

Holder Bangladesh, who also won the title in 2015, are eyeing a defence of their title win last year, said head coach Robert Martin.

He said, “Our target is to defend the title. We will take it match by match.”
