Bangladesh's struggles in front of goal in recent times have been well documented and among the two goals scored so far in the Saff Championship 2021 by the men in red and green, none have come from the forwards.

But ahead of their clash against Maldives Thursday, Bangladesh interim head coach Oscar Bruzon swatted away the worries regarding the forwards, and instead put a different spin to events.

In the pre-match press conference in Male, Bruzon said, "I am not seeing it this way (Bangladesh forwards struggling). Against India, Yasin's (Arafat) goal was assisted by midfielder Jamal (Bhuiyan) and winger Rakib (Hossain). In the first game (against Sri Lanka), Topu (Barman) scored from a penalty but it was made by midfielders Biplu (Ahmed) and (Mohammad) Ibrahim. I have 11 attackers, and 11 defenders. If needed they can score goals, and at the same time take care of the defence."

With four points from two matches, Bangladesh are in a better position compared to defending champions Maldives, who have lost their only game so far, against Nepal.

In their bid for victory and a final berth, Bangladesh received a double blow after the India clash as right-back Bishwanath Ghosh and winger Rakib Hossain were suspended for the Maldives tie, while midfielder Atiqur Rahman Fahad is an injury doubt.

Bruzon though looked at the brighter side and said this presents an opportunity for the fringe players to come into the side and cement their places.

"Injuries and suspensions are part of the game. We should not think about it. I think it is a great opportunity to give the new players a chance. I believe they would give their best in order to keep their places in the side," said Bruzon.
