Bangladesh stun Qatar

Dhaka, Aug 19 (Just News) : A Jamal Bhuiyan goal helped Bangladesh seal a historic Asian Games win that send the Tigers to the knockout round of the event at Qatar's expense.

It was a shock win for the Bangladesh side who were the underdogs, but Jamal struck in the added time to hand the team a victory that even the most optimistic supporter did not dream of.

The men in red and green were under pressure for most of the time and survived a few scares before an against-the-run-of-play goal from the skipper sealed the deal.

Bangladesh went through as second in the group with four points, behind group winners Uzbekistan on nine points. It was a fantastic win for Bangladesh. The young brigade of Jamie Day held off the quick Qataries with a solid defence organisation before pouncing the all-important goal in the third minute of the stopage time.

Masuk Mia galloped down the left-flank before realising a neat minus to an advancing Jamal who raced inside the box before releasing a neat grounder that rattled the back of the near post net.

Bangladesh are likely to face either Iran or Saudi Arabia in the round of sixteen game.
