Bangladesh will take on favourites Yemen in the last match of Group E of the AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers in Doha today with a slim chance of causing an upset to keep their fading hopes of a final-round berth alive.
The match will get underway at 7:00pm Bangladesh time at the Aspire Dome in Doha.
The boys in red and green started the campaign with a 2-0 defeat against Qatar, but bounced back to beat Bhutan 3-0 in their previous match. The win puts them in third position on the four-team table with three points, with both Qatar and Yemen at the top with four points each.
The winners of the 11 groups and four best runners-up teams will progress to the final round, which will be held in Thailand next year.
In the last edition, Bangladesh beat Qatar but lost against Yemen to finish second from the three-team group, with Yemen clinching the sole spot for the final round.
