Kyrgyzstan defender Azamat Baimatov is determined to attack Bangladesh as he eyes all three points when the two sides meet in the opening joint qualifiers of 2018 Worlc Cup and 2019 Asian Cup.
The Whaite Bars side will travel to Dhaka to open their qualifiers’s campaign on June 11 before hosting the game against Australia five days later.
Baimatov insisted that his team are trying not to get distracted about the game with the 2015 Asian Cup champions but will fully focus to win their first game.
“We are not thinking about Australia,” the 27-year-old told AP. “We want to take all three points against Bangladesh and then we can get ready to face Australia with confidence.”
Kyrgyzstan have never qualified for both Worlc Cup and Asian Cup final round, their best achievement in the continental stage were the third-place of 2006 AFC Challenge Cup.
