But Bangladesh showed complete domination in the second half as they scored four goals in space of only five minutes. Hasan Mohammad scored the second for his side in the 12th minute before Sohanur Sobuj made it 3-1 in the very next minute. Shafiul bagged his second in the 16th minute while skipper Arshad netted his side’s fifth goal in the 17th minute. 

Ganga Singh grabbed a consolation goal in the next minute for Canada. 

Earlier, Bangladesh lost their first three matches in the five-a-side event. They faced the humiliation of a 10-0 loss in their first match against India before losing to Australia 4-3. They then lost to Austria 3-0.

Bangladesh were supposed to play their last group stage match against Kenya Thursday and a win may provide an opportunity for them to reach the quarter-final.
