Myanmar national football team and Viet Nam team head coaches and players attended the pre-match press conference between Viet Nam and Myanmar, which will play as the final match of Group B of the 2022 AFF Cup tournament in Viet Nam today.
Myanmar head coach Antoine Hey said, “Within the group, the teams have their own strengths and weaknesses, and there are no major differences. Viet Nam is a good team and they have strengths and weaknesses. In the last three games, both our team and ourselves have had a lot of possession and created opportunities”.
“There are many good points. In the same way, we did not get the goal needed to win and there are weaknesses where we conceded a goal. Sadly, we can’t qualify for the group stage. Our team is still in the stage of construction.
“There are many international matches to compete including SEA Games, Olympics and Asian Cup Qualifiers. We have potential youth players. The team has to be changed later.”
Myanmar striker Aung Kaung Marn said, ‘‘We were able to dominate every match with possession advantage. We were also able to create opportunities to score goals. Unfortunately, we didn’t score as many goals as we should have and the team’s result was bad.”
“We have reviewed. All the new generation younger brothers and teammates in our team tried their best to achieve good results. If you want to blame, blame me. yor should not put pressure on the younger generation as much as possible. They still have bright futures to work on,” he said.
The match will be played at 7 pm Myanmar Standard Time at My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi, Viet Nam.
The Malaysian team will play against the Singaporean team at Bukit Jali Stadium in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Myanmar team has said goodbye to the group and will have to play only for honour, but Viet Nam, Singapore and Malaysia have a chance to qualify for the semi-finals. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
