Jamie backs Kingsley as an ‘option’ for national team

Bangladesh National team head coach Jamie Day finds Nigerian-born Bangladeshi professional footballer Eleta Kingsley as a good option for their national team in the coming days.

“Obviously, if he is available, he will be a good option. He is good in size and definitely will improve our forward line that will increase our chances of goals,” said Jamie on Monday.

Jamie also believed that their upcoming FIFA friendlies against Palestine and Kyrgyzstan will help them make a good preparation for the SAFF Championship in Maldives in October. “The two matches will be very tough games. The teams are higher than us in rankings, they have good players and we will have good challenges.

“It will be a test for us in preparation. I don’t expect to win the games but a good performance…It will be very good preparation before the SAFF competition,” he added.
