Jamal likely to return from Denmark Oct 29

Jamal likely to return from Denmark Oct 29

Bangladesh national football team captain Jamal Bhuiyan is expecting to back in Dhaka from Denmark on October 29 to join the camp ahead of the two friendly matches against Nepal scheduled for November 13 and 17. The camp started on Saturday.

Jamal left Dhaka for Denmark in the middle of March when all sports activities were postponed in Bangladesh as elsewhere in the world due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Talking to The Independent over phone, the national team captain shared his feelings over their return to action and also stated what he did to remain fit during his 8-month-long stay in the European country.

He also looked very happy as Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) has arranged two FIFA friendly matches against Nepal paving the way for them to be back in action after a long interval. 
“I am really feeling good and happy to get a hold of the opportunity to play two friendly matches. I think it’s good that we are starting again. Hopefully, I am coming on the 29th [of October],” said Jamal.
About his routine work to remain fit, he added: “I do fitness training every day, do maintain myself. I go to the gym and play football.”  
Also conscious about their long break of playing matches, the national captain thinks it would be something difficult for them to turn into usual form after staying out of the game for a long time.

“It would be a little bit harder than normal because many of us haven’t been playing regularly for the last few months and no one is also fully fit, but hopefully we will be able to improve our fitness through the 14 days practice.”
Jamal, who almost leads every match from the front to inspire the team, however, expressed his expectation to win both the matches against Nepal ‘though it would be a very tough job.’ “They are good opponents. It will be tough but hopefully we will succeed in both the matches.”

The national team captain also maintains regular contacts with his teammates, as he said, “We have WhatsApp group where we communicate.”
Denmark-borne Bangladeshi Jamal came to Bangladesh for the first time in 2011 and returned to Denmark failing to make a room in the Brothers Union Club, but in 2012 he came back with an ambition to play for Bangladesh national team. 

Jamal had to struggle much to get rid of the tough time to be used to with the surroundings, food habits, weather even with language in Bangladesh.  

The hard working young booter made his dream comes true by virtue of his perseverance and great patience and finally wore the Red and Green jersey and ultimately had the captain’s arm-band proving his strength of mind and talent.
