“SAFF is the sub-continental World Cup, my first target is to make Bangladesh SAFF champions. It will inspire us and boost our confidence so that we can give the best performance in FIFA, AFC qualifiers. We have good players in the national team. Hopefully, we can do it, we can put Bangladesh in a better place,” he said during a Facebook live program named ‘FB LIVE Adda with Your Idol’ arranged by Bangladesh Football Team on Saturday night.
