Bangladesh defeated Macau 3-0 on Sunday and qualified for the AFC Challenge Cup final round as the best runners-up of the four groups. Bangladesh are level with Maldives on three points but they advanced to the final round having a better goal difference. Bangladesh join India, DPR Korea, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka and Myanmar in the final round. The final round will be played either in February 2010 or May 2010.

Due to the withdrawal of Afghanistan from Group C, the results against the fourth-placed sides of the other groups have not been taken into consideration.

Bangladesh 2-1-0-1-2-2-(0)-3
Maldives 2-1-0-1-4-5-(-1)-3
Pakistan 2-0-2-0-3-3-(0)-2
