In preparation for the 2019 AFC
Asian Cup qualification, the Myanmar
national football team will
play a friendly with Cambodia
today in Cambodia, the MFF
The announcement was made at the Match Coordination Meeting held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia yesterday, with coaches, players and media representatives in attendance.
“We play the match as a preparation for the 2019 AFC qualification match against India on 14 November.
I like the playing style of Cambodia, because the players are improving. Both teams participated in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification, and the match will give prominent benefits to both teams”, said Myanmar Head Coach Gerd Zeise.
“We have no pressure in the match, as the match is just a friendly and a preparation for the match against India next week.
However, the match will be worth to see as Cambodians are in great shape”, said Myanmar team Captain Yan Aung Kyaw.
“The match is not being played for the result but for the analysis on the strength and weaknesses of our team, as we will play against Jordan in 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification.
We prepared our best and all the players are ready for the match. Although we cannot predict a loss or a win, we will do the best”, said Cambodia Head Coach Prak Sovannara.
