Zahid Ahsan Russel said, “We have selected the players from the Bangabandhu Under-17 gold Cup football tournament which was held across the country where a total of 5485 teams and 1,10,000 players took part.”

“Next time we will select Under-20 booters, as they would have the opportunity for one year training in Brazil and we will also try to send our women booters also,” said the State Minister for Youth and Sports.

Zahid Ahsan also said that in the next budget, they will try to increase the amount for football when this fiscal year a total of Taka 20 crore was allocated for the football.     

Joao Tabajara de Oliveira Junior, the ambassador of Brazil in his address in the press meet said “It is the first step for a long time process and collaboration with Bangladesh and Brazil, we will improve the relationship between Brazil and Bangladesh.”

“The boys are going to Brazil, I wish them good trip, they will watch how Brazil play and will learn the technique and tactics, they will enjoy the Copa America Cup.”

“I am overwhelmed to see that there are so many fans of Brazil football when all over Bangladesh the enthusiastic people supporting Brazil hoisted our national flags. So in future the relation between Brazil and Bangladesh will improve.”

“I have to admit that all these begin by the passion for football, and vision of honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. She pressed the button and now we are all here together as a team.”

“I want to say that since my first day here in Bangladesh, I had one thing, one thought. I think football must be one of the main activity that the embassy can be involved with,” said Joao Tabajara de Oliveira Junior Ambassador of Brazil.
