Myanmar U-22 team prepares for Viet Nam SEA Games


According to the Myanmar Football Federation, the Myanmar U-22 men’s national football team is taking training ahead of the 31st Viet Nam SEA Games, which will be held in May.
Bulgarian Velizar Popov still heads the Myanmar youth squad, and 31 preliminary players have been selected.
Officials have selected senior players in the preliminary list as it will allow three senior players to play in the SEA Games National Football Tournament.
Myanmar U-22 head coach Popov has selected 23 players in the preliminary list. Among the 23, eight senior players are involved, and the eight are shortlisted for the three Myanmar senior players. The latter players are playing for foreign clubs or locals.
According to the rules of the SEA Games, only 20 players can be selected per team, so the Myanmar U-22 team must reduce to 11 players.
Except for Brunei Darussalam, ten other teams from 11 Southeast Asian nations will compete in the SEA Games.
The Myanmar U-22 team is trying to play international matches before the SEA Games.
