“We want to reach the semi-final of the Bangabandhu Gold Cup. There are a few teams in this tournament which are stronger than that of Saff tournament, but we are ready to confront them,” said the Englishman.
Day also hailed goalkeeper Shahidul Alam Sohel, who made a blunder in the Saff Championship that saw the host get eliminated from the group stage. Sohel is not in the squad due to personal reasons but Day hoped the shot-stopper would return soon.
