Myanmar women’s squad spends two months for SEA Games

The Myanmar women’s football team has a chance to spend about two months preparing for the 31st Vietnam SEA Games in coming May, according to the Myanmar Football Federation.
The Myanmar women’s squad returned to Yangon at the end of January after last month’s 2022 AFC Women’s Cup and is under quarantine according to the COVID-19 health guidelines.
After the deadline, those players will be given a few days off and training will begin later this month, football officials said.
The team will spend about two months preparing for the SEA Games and is preparing for international pre-match matches, officials added.
The team will compete in the Asian Cup in October 2021. The Myanmar Football Federation is trying to arrange a pre-SEA Games qualifier before the final round of the 2022 Asian Cup, which was played in January this year.
The Myanmar women’s team was eliminated from the group stage of the last Asian Cup, as the team lost to top Asian teams Japan and South Korea with narrow result, and drew a 2-2 with Vietnam.
