Myanmar men’s football team will take on Timor-Leste men’s team today in the Group A second-day match of the SEA Games men’s football tournament.
The match of team Myanmar will start at 3:30 pm Myanmar Standard Time, while host Cambodia will play against the Philippines at 6:30 pm MST.
The Myanmar team started the first game, but the other three teams had to compete in the second match.
Since the Myanmar team is playing the first match against Timor, which is the weakest team in the group, they need to score more goals in addition to full points.
In the first match, team Timor lost four goals to the host Cambodia.
The Myanmar squad has to start with Timor before playing tight matches against Indonesia and Cambodia.
The Myanmar team has met Timor three times in a row in the group stage of the SEA Games, winning in the 2019 tournament by 3-1 and the 2021 tournament by 3-2.
Michael Feichtenbeiner, a German citizen, is handling the Myanmar U-22 team that will compete in the Cambodian SEA Games as the head coach, and this is the coach’s first international competition with team Myanmar.
