Myanmar national football team will take on the Malaysia team today at 4:30 pm as a Group B opener of the AFF Cup 2022 at Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon.
At 7 pm Myanmar time, the Laos team will play against the Viet Nam team at the national stadium in Vientiane, Laos.
Group B has Viet Nam, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore and Laos teams.
On the first day, the remaining four teams had to compete without the Singapore team.
The match between the Myanmar team and the Malaysia team will be broadcasted by Sky Net TV channels Sky Net Sports HD and Sky Net Sports 4 TV channels. The pre-match press conference between Myanmar and Malaysia teams was held at 2 pm on 20 December at the press conference hall of Thuwunna Football Stadium, and the head coach and captain of both teams attended.
Antoine Hey, head coach of the Myanmar team, said, “We have carefully prepared for the AFF Cup and have selected the best team.” Since there are no injured players in the team, many players will be able to participate. It was true that the result of the friendly match against Thailand and the way they played was not satisfactory. After the test match against Thailand, we had time to prepare, so we re-prepared to be in the best position.
“The requirements have been prepared and we will see that the game will no longer be like the friendly match against Thailand. It will be the first home game in more than three years, so we expect the fans to cheer for us,” the head coach added.
Malaysian team head coach Kim Pangong said, “We have prepared well for this tournament. Ready for the race. The players are also fully fit. The team is confident that it will give the best performance for Malaysian fans and get the best result.
“We respect and are comfortable with the plans of the Myanmar Football Federation. The away result against the Myanmar team was bad, but this time we will try to get a good result,” he added. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
