The national team had held their last camp in Thailand prior to the Laos friendly on March 27 this year

The residential training camp of the Bangladesh football team, ahead of the Asian Games and Saff Championship, has begun with the participation of 32 players from the 44-man preliminary squad in Savar's BKSP Saturday. 

The reporting of the players was held at BFF House Saturday before the troop, guided by interim head coach Mahbub Hossain Roksy, moved to BKSP in the afternoon. The national team had held their last camp in Thailand prior to the Laos friendly on March 27 this year. 

Three players - goalkeeper Shahidul Alam Sohel and forwards Towhidul Alam Sabuj and Jafar Iqbal - couldn't report on day one due to exams and the trio are expected to join the camp by Friday, informed Roksy. 

Full-back Mansur Amin also failed to join the camp due to injury while seven regular playing members - Mamunul Islam, Nasir Uddin Chowdhury, Waly Faisal, Emon Mahmud Babu, Ashraful Islam Rana, Saad Uddin and Atiqur Rahman Fahad - flew to London Friday to play exhibition matches for Dhaka Ekadosh RC. 

All the players however, are scheduled to return to the camp before the arrival of newly appointed English head coach Jamie Day, informed team manager Satyajit Das Rupu. BFF general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag said Day may arrive in Dhaka on June 9. He also hoped to finalise the deals of the new goalkeeping and fitness coach within a week. 

Roksy, who worked as an assistant coach to different foreign head coaches like Argentine Diego Andres Cruciani, Croatian Robert Rubcic and Dutchman Lodewijk De Kruif since 2007, said, "We will officially begin our training camp from (Sunday) morning. There will be two practice sessions everyday and the fitness of the players will be the main focus."

Roksy will be accompanied by BFF coaches Masud Parvez Kaiser and Mostofa Anwar Pervez before the arrival of the new coaching staff.
