Myanmar vs India first friendly to play today


National women’s teams of Myanmar and India will play two FIFA-recognized friendly matches on 9 and 12 July at Thuwunna Youth Training Centre in Yangon. Myanmar National women’s team will play against the Indian women’s team at 4 pm on 9 July (today) as the first friendly match.
At the pre-match press conference, Indian head coach Langam Chaoba Devi said that her team faced the Myanmar team in the second round of the 2019 Olympic qualifiers and drew three goals each. Her team played two friendly matches with Uzbekistan before coming to Myanmar. This year, they have played seven warm-up matches. She added that her team is comprised of a mix of senior and junior players. She stated that every coach wants to win the match they play. Myanmar is a solid and skilful team. Although they respect their rival team, they will do their best to achieve winning results.
Myanmar women’s team head coach Tetsuro Uki said that the Myanmar team gathered and practised once in March. The team got about three weeks of preparedness for these friendly matches against India. He stated that it is an excellent opportunity for Myanmar, which played a few international matches this year, to play these matches against a strong team like India. The team is preparing diligently for this opportunity. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
