British hopefuls travel to Bangladesh
Two British footballers will be travelling to Bangladesh hoping to make the squad to play in the South Asian Games.
Londoners Sarwar Ahmed Sadik and Shiblu Miah have been included in the provisional 39-player squad for the Bangladesh u-23 team which will compete in the Games.
The duo will travel to a camp in Dhaka on Thursday (12) hoping to be in the final 25 squad which will be selected by national team coach Zoran Djordjevic.
It is a dream come true for two up-coming footballers who will have the chance to experience international football and also gives other British Bangladeshi players hope of doing the same.
The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) is following in the footsteps of the Pakistan Football Federation who have been attracting the services of European-based players.
For this venture, the BFF called on the services of the Bangladesh Football Association (BFA) UK to find players good enough to join the squad.
The BFA targeted two other players alongside Sadik and Shiblu. Dagenham and Redbridge skipper Anwar Uddin is currently nursing an injury while former Wycombe Wanderers striker Shahed Ahmed is studying for his exams.
Left-back Sadik plies his trade with semi-pro outfit Sporting Bengal while Shiblu is a striker for Aylesbury United FC, who play in Division one of the Southern League, otherwise known as the Zamaretto league.
