Lebanon Advances despite Loss to Bangladesh

Lebanon advanced to the third round of World Cup qualifying with a 4-2 aggregate win over Bangladesh, despite losing the second leg 2-0 on Thursday.

Mithun Chowdhury raised the hopes of the Bangladesh fans at the Bangabandhu National Stadium when he scored in the 52nd minute.

But Lebanon, which won 4-0 at Beirut last week, ensured there was no danger to its place in the third round and Zahid Hasan Ameli's 87th-minute goal came too late for Bangladesh.
