After a rather cagey end-to-end start to the game, Bangladesh get the breakthrough at the 41st minute of the first half. Saad Uddin scored the goal from a floated free-kick from skipper Jamal Bhuiyan! 

Both the teams started slowly in their Group E FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifier at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, also known as the Saltlake Stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday (Oct 15).

Bangladesh, ranked 187 in the world, were clearly labeled underdogs to beat neighbours India who are 83 rungs up them.

West Bengal’s Kolkata is hosting their national team for the first time since 2011 against a team where every player is of Bengali origin.
