Bangladesh to play two friendlies with Seychelles after Brunei withdrawal

 Football Association of Brunei Darussalam has withdrawn from playing Fifa friendly with Bangladesh which forced the Bangladesh Football Federation to cancel the tri-nation series, scheduled for later this month.

“All the preparation was taken to organize the Tri Nations Cup 2023 during March 22 to 28. Brunei will not come due to unavoidable circumstances. National team committee decided to hold two Fifa international matches against Seychelles,” said a press release from the BFF Tuesday.

Earlier, it was announced that Bangladesh, Brunei and Seychelles would play one match apiece with each other during March's Fifa international window in Sylhet.

After Brunei's refusal, Bangladesh will now play two friendlies against Seychelles on March 25 and March 28 at Sylhet District Stadium.
