Sports Reporter :
The youth hockey team's coach Mamunur Rashid said his team will face a tough task in the upcoming Men's U-21 Bangabandhu Asia Cup Hockey, which is scheduled to be held in January 21 to January 30.
Mamunur Rashid said it's a big challenge for him as Bangladesh placed in a tough group, which consists of defending champions India, runners-up Pakistan, third ranked South Korea and Chinese Taipei in Group-A.
Expressing the doubts Mamun said, "It'll be very difficult for me whether I'll be able to organise the team at that time… the team's practice has just begun let's see what happens."
Meanwhile, the youth hockey players are now staying at Bangladesh Air Force's Bangabandhu Base and will start their full-fledged practice at the Maulana Bhashani National Hockey Stadium today.
The 10-nation Bangabandu Under-21 Junior Asia Cup Hockey will be held on January at the Maulana Bhashani National Stadium.
Japan, Malaysia, China, Uzbekistan and Singapore are put in comparatively easier Group-B.
