Myanmar women’s team to start training next week for SEA Games

The Myanmar women’s soccer team will start training in the third week of February for the 31st SEA Games, according to the football authorities.
The team is taking a break from the previous final round of the 2022 AFC Women’s Cup to prepare for the SEA Games. The squad has been taking training for international competitions since the middle of last year.
The Myanmar women’s team won the Asian Cup in the international competition and was eliminated from the group stage in the final round of the Asian Cup. The draw ended after a two-time lead over ASEAN leaders Vietnam. The Myanmar women’s team will spend more than two months preparing for the SEA Games, which will be based on the finalists of the AFC Women’s Cup.
Myanmar team head coach U Tin Myint Aung will organize the team with 30 preliminary players, while Win Theingi Tun, who plays for Indian club Gokulam, will not be able to join for the time being.
The team is trying to play international matches before the SEA Games, officials added. The Myanmar women’s national team previously won the bronze medal at the 2019 Philippine SEA Games. The squad has won three silver medals plus seven bronze medals along the SEA Games tourney.
