“We have learned a lot from the faults and defects we have faced before in AFC Cup 2017 but we are sure that the mistakes will not be repeated in the Sheikh Kamal International Club cup,” said Mujtaba Faiz, Shaheen’s assistant coach. For the second consecutive day, Shaheen conducted its exercise and preparations at Chittagong city.

All the strategies and defects were analyzed and worked on,” said Bior.
