JAKARTA: Bangladesh secured their second win of the tournament when they defeated Kazakhstan 6-1 in a Group B match at the GBK Hockey Stadium.
But Bangladesh coach K. Gobinathan was not a happy man.
“One cannot complain about the scoreline. I am not happy at the way they played the game and numerous missed chances. You need to be patient and not waste the chances at goal. Against a better team, it will prove costly. It is these matches where you need to learn and get the moves right. The players have to understand this and not get carried away when they play teams ranked lower than us,” he said.
Mohamed Fazla Hossain Rabby opened the scoring for the Bangladesh team in the 10th minute from a field attempt. In the 14th minute, 19-year old Rashel Mohamed playing in his 10th match for the team scored an opportunistic goal. It was only his third for the team since making his debut last year. Bangladesh kept the attack going and goal number three came through a field attempt by Mohamed Mainul Islam in the 18thminute. Md Khorshadur Rahman then added two goals from the penalty corner in the 32nd and 47thminutes. ASHKEYEV Yermek Tashkeyev scored a consolation goal form a field attempt in the 51st minute. But a late penalty corner goal from Mamunur Rahman in the 59th minute gave the Bangladesh team a 6-1 win.
