Rakib Hossain and Sheikh Morsalin were both played on the wings by Bangladesh coach Javier Cabrera, who took a gamble by playing without a true striker and instead deploying them as wingers. The forwards repaid the coach’s confidence by scoring a goal apiece against Bhutan in the decisive SAFF Championship match that took place in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
Despite giving up an early lead, Bangladesh was able to produce a remarkable comeback, especially following the equalizer from the teenaged Morsalin. Rakib then made sure of a memorable triumph by participating in the second goal, scoring the third goal, and scoring the fourth goal.
Rakib and Morsalin are ecstatic to have scored consecutive goals in the SAFF Championship and are looking forward to contributing to Bangladesh’s victory in the days ahead.
“This victory was really necessary for the Bangladesh football team. Every single player put in a lot of effort. I believe that all of our hard work was worthwhile, yet the task at hand is not yet complete. “I think the semifinal will be very difficult for us, and we really want to play our best football in the next match,” Rakib said, adding that they planned to put pressure on Bhutan from the opening of the encounter. “We really want to play our best football in the next match.”
“We were intent on attacking in an effort to maintain the pressure that was being applied on Bhutan. “However, the most important thing is that we have come back strong,” stated the winger for the Bashundhara Kings. “I always try to score goals, and it is always a happy moment when I do.” “I always take to the ground to score goals.” I want to keep up the scoring pace that we’ve been having.
Morsalin replied, “I feel good. We would want to express our sincere gratitude to the people of the country for their support. They continued to have trust in us, and we are more than glad to reward them. It was my responsibility to ensure that the team prevailed in the match, and I am satisfied with the contribution that I made. I want to be able to remain working here.”
