FIFA turns down Bangladesh request to shift 2014 World Cup qualifier from Pakistan
Dhaka, June 14(ANI): FIFA has turned down Bangladesh's request to relocate the away leg of their 2014 World Cup qualifier against Pakistan from Lahore to Dhaka due to security reasons, Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) President Kazi Salahuddin has said.
"During the FIFA congress in Zurich earlier this month, we requested them to allow us to play both legs in Dhaka. But they did not agree," The News quoted Salahuddin, as saying.
"Expense was one of our issues. Also we were concerned as our coach was reluctant to travel to Pakistan on security grounds," he added.
Bangladesh will play Pakistan in their away leg qualifiers in Lahore on July 3.
The first leg will be hosted by Dhaka on June 29. (ANI)
