Booters lose 3-0 against Oman
Bangladesh suffered a 3-0 defeat against Oman in the last game of the second round of Joint Qualifiers for the World Cup and Asian Cup in Doha last night.
Mohammad Al Ghafri broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute before a second-half brace from Khalid Al Hajri gave the Gulf side a comfortable victory.
Playing without five of their regular starters due to injury and suspension, Bangladesh were on the backfoot all through and had only two shots on target against 22 from Oman.
The defeat means Bangladesh ended the round at the bottom of Group E with two points from eight matches.
Despite the defeat, Bangladesh were through to the final round of Asian Cup Qualifiers, thanks to an altered system of qualification.
