It’s been little more than a year since Saad Uddin’s blistering header secured Bangladesh a notable draw against favourite India in front of full-house crowd at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata at their World Cup qualifying fixture.

The versatile Abahani midfielder who can also be deployed as right-back or winger for both club and country attended the media session after today’s training where he admitted the impact of Kolkata experience.

“India game would be an inspiration. We learned a lot from that game.” said the 22-year-old ahead of the upcoming friendly against Nepal on Friday.

The fitness condition of the players is however not up to the mark after long Covid-19 hiatus of around eight months.

“It’s been long time we all were out of practice. It will take some time to reach previous level. We have to play some games and train more if we have to meet the standard. All players are trying to be on the track.” said Saad to a different query.

Saif Sporting Club’s juvenile forward Faisal Ahmed Fahim also talked to the media. The 18-year-old national youth team member admitted it would be challenging to make debut in the senior side.

“It’s more challenging because senior and age-group teams are different. Here, there are better players than us who are more experienced. I have lot to learn from them.” said Fahim who have a slight chance of playing in absence of Matin Miah.
