Myanmar and Thailand competed in the 31st SEA Games Men’s National Futsal Championship yesterday at Nam Gymnasium, and Myanmar lost 2-1 to Thailand.
The Myanmar team showcased the main players including Kyaw Htet Aung, Myo Thet Aung, Myo Myint Soe, Khin Zaw Lin, and Thaing Bwe Aung.
AFF defending champions Thailand took the lead in 3 and 13 minutes, but Myanmar defended well in the remaining minutes. In the 14th minute, Thaing Bwe Aung scored the first goal for the Myanmar team through a counter-attack and the Thai team took the lead 2-1 at the end of the first half.
In the second half, as the match was tense, and the Thai team committed five fouls the Myanmar team had to play very carefully. Myanmar goalkeeper Kyaw Htet Aung defended the Thai team’s scores and team captain Myo Myint Soe showed good form in the back row, so the Thais could not score further goals. “In today’s game, my boys were able to follow the technique. The Thai team was good in everything, but we reacted well,” said Myanmar National Team Head Coach Bunlert Cheowarang.
“My team were able to play with more confidence than they previously did against Indonesia. Some players still need confidence and experience,” the Myanmar head coach added. The Myanmar national futsal team has lost both of its last two matches at the SEA Games and will face hosts Viet Nam on 18 May and Malaysia on 20 May.
