Bangladesh issues FIFA World Cup postage stamp

world Updated: Jul 11, 2010 22:07 IST

Bangladesh issued a commemorative postage stamp on Sunday to mark the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Post and Telecommunications Minister Raji Uddin Ahmed Raju released the stamp, which, officials said, will be used alongside regular-issue stamps in the soccer-loving country, Xinhua reported.

Though the favourite sport in Bangladesh is cricket, the nation's 162 million people are also passionate about football, even though the country has never qualified for any major international football tournament.
