Promising forward Sheikh Morsalin is all set to miss out on the home-and-away fixtures of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Palestine in March, informed national team coach Javier Cabrera.
Sheikh Morsalin, one of the rising stars in Bangladesh football, has been struggling to find a place in the Bashundhara Kings playing XI this season, having not played a match for the club since December 11.
Footballer-turned-coach Alfaz Ahmed emphasised on professionalism at club level to build on Bangladesh’s impressive performance in 2023 for improved displays in the future. The legendary striker believes that there is no alternative to producing star players in order to bringing the glory days of football back.
Year 2023 could have easily been termed as the best year for men's football in Bangladesh in recent years as the national team, for a change, performed decently.
Morsalin earned the recognition on the back of his fierce right-footed strike against Lebanon
Bangladesh forward Sheikh Morsalin said that his target was always to go for the win after he netted a long-ranging screamer to rescue a 1-1 draw against Lebanon in a World Cup Qualifiers fixture at the Bashundhara Kings Arena on Tuesday.
Sheikh Morsalin reinforced his reputation as the brightest young talent in Bangladesh football after his eye-catching goal helped Bangladesh earn a come-from-behind 1-1 draw against visiting Lebanon in a World Cup Qualifiers match at the Bashundhara Kings Arena in Dhaka yesterday.
Forward Sheikh Morsalin has been recalled to the national team as head coach Javier Cabrera disclosed a 30-member preliminary squad for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers against Australia and Lebanon.
