Myanmar U-19 team aims high for international tourneys

A total of 32 Myanmar U-19 footballers are currently con­ducting camping training for the upcoming international matches, as stated by the My­anmar Football Federation.


Head coach U Aung Na­ing is managing the team, which was built with talented players from local clubs and various states and regions, starting from the year’s start.


Team Myanmar has been trying to build capacity for a long time. As a result, they won two friendlies and lost one against top local clubs, Shan United, Yangon United and Hanthawady United, in March.


The young Myanmar squad will also compete in the 2024 ASEAN U-19 Cham­pionship, which will be held in Indonesia from 20 June to 3 July, so that they will take spe­cial training during the Thing­yan period. The team will also set a target for the upcoming U-20 Asian Cup Qualifiers. The Myanmar Football Fed­eration is arranging interna­tional friendly matches for the young team in preparation for the ASEAN tourney. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
