Youngster Hoque Named in Preliminary Bangladesh Squad
Sunday, 19th Sep 2021 19:38

Academy second-year scholar Yousuf Hoque has been named in a preliminary 34-man Bangladesh squad ahead of the SAFF Championship in the Maldives next month, his first senior international call.

Bangladesh are in the same group as the hosts, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka at the tournament which runs from October 1st to 16th.

Striker Hoque, 18, doesn’t yet have a Bangladeshi passport but has applied for a visa and it’s anticipated that the paperwork will be a formality.

If he wins a cap, Hoque will become the first Town player to represent Bangladesh.

The squad is expected to meet up to train in preparation for the competition from September 21st.

Great to see more young international players in the ranks... and we might start getting more Bangladeshi fans. If they are as vocal at footy as they were at the cricket World Cup a few years ago, it should add to the atmosphere!
