Bangladeshi fan backs Korea with 3.5-kilometer flag
Bangladeshi chemist Abu Kowsir spent $5,000 preparing to support his chosen team at the 2022 Qatar World Cup with a 3.5-kilometer (2.2-mile) banner of flags that spans the distance between his village and the next in Bancharampur, Bangladesh. But Kowsir isn't rooting for tournament favorites like Brazil or Argentina, his team of choice is Korea.
According to an AFP interview, Kowsir spent 15 years living and working in Korea as a migrant worker and fell in love with the country. As a sign of his appreciation for the country he says gave him so much, Kowsir and his wife Sabina decided to go all-out to show their support for the Taeguk Warriors this year.
