National midfield maestro, Safiq Rahim has warned his teammates not to take the threat posed by the visiting Bangladesh team lightly.

Johor bound Safiq urged the players to be fully committed when taking on the Bangladesh national team in an international friendly at the Bukit Jalil Stadium tomorrow.

"We must take the match seriously and not underestimate our opponents. Our goal is to ensure a win," Safiq told Bernama from Wisma FAM on Monday.

He added that a win would lift the team spirit of the national team ahead of their AFF Suzuki Cup title defense opener against Singapore on November 25.

Bangladesh lost their previous friendly outing against Thailand in a 5-0 rout at Rajamangala Stadium, Bangkok last Saturday.
