Day has added defender Tariq Raihan Kazi, who has played for the Finland U-17 and U-19 teams. He is the second foreign player to join the team after Denmark-born Bangladeshi captain Jamal Bhuyan.
Raihan Kazi, alongside Nazmul Islam Russel, MS Bablu and Sumon Reza, will be aiming to make their national team debuts.
Day will select a squad of 23 players for the resumption of Bangladesh's Asian Qualifiers Group E campaign, where they are scheduled to face Afghanistan on October 8 and Qatar five days later.
"We’ve added some new players to the squad and are excited to see how they go on," said Day.
I think we have a good mix of old and young players we selected; so we are looking forward to welcoming them all. Hopefully, It would be a good camp.”
