Bangladesh national football team coach Jamie Day along with the two other coaching staff are scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on May 10 after a month-long vacation, said a Bangladesh Football Federation official on Thursday.

‘As per schedule, Day, assistant coach Stuart Watkiss and goalkeeping coach Les Cleevely will arrive on Monday if everything remains alright,’ BFF general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag  told New Age.

Bangladesh football team are scheduled to start their training camp on May 12 ahead of their Group E FIFA World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers in a centralised venue in Qatar in June.

They are scheduled to play their remaining three return-leg matches of the five-team group at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha against Afghanistan, India and Oman respectively on June 3, 7 and 15.

All the three English coaches left Bangladesh for their native country in the first week of April after Bangladesh’s campaign in the tri-nation football series when Day’s charges conceded 1-2 defeat against hosts Nepal in the final on March 29.
