Javier Cabrera

Cabrera losing Salahuddin’s trust?

The BFF boss watched from the VIP Box of the Bashundhara Kings Arena on Tuesday as Bangladesh conceded a stoppage time goal in a 1-0 home loss against the Middle Eastern nation, five days after being thrashed 5-0 by the same side in Kuwait.

Palestine loss hard to digest for Cabrera

Bangladesh nearly pulled off a highly improbable feat of escaping with a point to maintain their unbeaten run at the Bashundhara Kings Arena in Dhaka yesterday but ended up succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against Palestine in a Group I fixture of the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers.

Can Bangladesh maintain unbeaten record at Kings Arena?

After being outplayed by Palestine in the away match of the World Cup Qualifiers, Bangladesh are seeking motivation for Tuesday’s home match against the same opposition on home ground and in front of home crowd.

Disappointed Cabrera looking for answers

Bangladesh coach Javier Cabrera was disappointed with the way his charges dropped their guard suddenly in a 5-0 thrashing by Palestine in a World Cup Qualifier in Kuwait on Thursday night, despite fighting toe to toe with the Middle East nation for a large portion of the game.

Can Bangladesh stop Palestine?

Before going for a two-week training camp in Saudi Arabia ahead of the World Cup Qualifiers against Palestine, Bangladesh coach Javier Cabrera had repeatedly said that his team needed to put in more than they did against Lebanon in a 1-1 draw in November last year.

Cabrera’s charges ready for Palestine challenge in Kuwait

We will be ready for Palestine: Cabrera

“The camp, like the previous year’s one, was a great experience for the team and definitely, we are better team than what we were before coming here. We are little closer to the Palestine tie and we will be ready for March 21,” Cabrera was quoted as saying in a video footage sent by Bangladesh Football Federation.

Jamal can still deliver for Bangladesh: Cabrera

“He [Jamal] has been in training and has played friendly games for Sol de Mayo. We know he is fit. He lacks in competitive game time but that’s because of the situation of the league in Argentina,” Cabrera told the reporters at a press briefing yesterday.
