The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) president Kazi Salahuddin once promised to see Bangladesh qualify for the 2022 World Cup. The promise did not age well, so to speak. However, the BFF boss would now probably be pleased to have ensured that the World Cup trophy gets to visit the country again as part of its global tour.
The original trophy of FIFA World Cup will arrive in Dhaka this morning for a 36-hour tour accompanied by a seven-member FIFA delegation including former French World Cup winner Christian Karembeu.
The FIFA World Cup trophy is coming to Bangladesh in early June for a 36-hour tour, informed Bangladesh Football Federation’s general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohagh on Monday.
