Myanmar U-19 Women’s Football Team will play against the Viet Nam team today in the semi-finals of the AFF U-18 Women’s Championship.
Myanmar vs Viet Nam match will begin at 3 pm Myanmar Standard Time and Thailand will take on Australia at 7:30 pm Myanmar Standard Time.
The Myanmar team finished in second place after the group stage and the team is meeting Viet Nam in the semi-finals.
Team Viet Nam won every group matches with a 9-0 win over Singapore, 2-1 over Indonesia, 7-0 over Cambodia, and 1-0 over Thailand.
Myanmar beat Malaysia 2-0, the Philippines 3-1 but lost to Australia by 1-2.
Since the Myanmar team qualified for the semi-finals after defeating the Philippines, the group’s final match against Australia left out most of its core players and played with mostly reserve players.
This is the second time the ASEAN Football Federation has held the tournament, eight years after the first in 2014.
The Myanmar team did not play an international warm-up match before this tournament, but their performance has stabilized from match to match, and they will certainly play the best response against Viet Nam in today’s semi-finals.—Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
