Forty-seven talented young players were recently chosen to be part of the Myanmar U-15 national team, it was announced at the National Football Academy yesterday, according to a statement from the Myanmar Football Federation.
Football officials had already selected some players for the U-15 team from different States and Regions last month.
The most recent additions to the U-15 team were mainly from the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) and three different football academies including the Tatmadaw Football Academy. The young players are being trained in their respective camps. The aim of assembling players for a Myanmar U-15 national football team is to compete in the Jockey Club International Youth Football Invitational Tournment that will be held in Hong Kong starting from 23 March, said an official from Myanmar Football Federation.
It would be the very first time for a Myanmar youth team to compete in that kind of football tournament, an official added.
The selection of players will continue today.—Kyaw Zin Lin
