Bangladesh VS Oman World Cup LIVE Football Score 15 June 2021
Both of these sides have had their fate already sealed and known ahead of the final round of fixtures. Bangladesh have been eliminated for some time now with no wins in their seven matches in the group whilst Oman are assured of second place but they are seven points off already qualified as hosts Qatar at the top-of-the-group. Oman will still need to win this one to make it very likely of finishing as one of the best second-place teams. They will expect to win this quite comfortably, as well.
It is perhaps no surprise that the 184th-ranked side in the world have failed to win any of their seven matches in qualifying so far, with their 2-0 defeat at home to India on Monday all but condemning them to finishing bottom of Group E. Former Arsenal academy graduate Jamie Day has been in charge of the Bengal Tigers since 2018, guiding them to this stage of qualifying via a 1-0 aggregate win over Laos.
However, there is little scope for further footballing improvement in a cricket-obsessed nation, with the 41-year-old hoping to salvage some momentum in their final qualifier on Tuesday.
They are likely to meet a highly motivated Oman side, though, given that the visitors still need one more point to guarantee their progression to the third round.
A brace from Abdullah Fawaz helped secure a narrow 2-1 win against Afghanistan on Friday, which takes Oman to the top in the ranking of second-placed nations in Asian qualifying.
Only five of the eight second-placed countries can progress to the next round, with Iran in sixth still technically capable of overtaking the Reds.
Oman boss Branko Ivankovic actually led Iran to the 2006 World Cup earlier in his managerial career, so it would be quite some turnaround to progress to the next stage ahead of his former side.
