Myanmar National League defending champion Shan United played a test match against Myanmar U-23 football team at Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon yesterday and the game ended in a goalless draw.
As many of Shan United’s core players are participating in the Myanmar national team’s international matches, the team only competed with reserve players in this match.
Shan United lineup includes Hein Thiha Zaw, Myo Ko Tun, Zin Phyo Aung, Zwe Min Khant, Thi Nyein Min, Mark, Aung Kyaw Thu and Lin Htet Soe.
Meanwhile, strong players participated in the Myanmar youth team.
Every player from both sides showed their good performance in the friendly match.
Both sides were eager to win, but the match ended in a goalless draw.
Shan United will face Macarthur FC of Australia in the first match of the AFC Cup group stage on 21 September. In turn, the Myanmar U-23 team is taking training with 25 preliminary players for the 2024 Asian Cup U-23 qualifiers to be played in September.
The team has been reorganizing since 23 August after the 2023 ASEAN U-23 tournament. U Aung Naing is handling it as the interim head coach as German head coach Michael Feichtenbeiner will also supervise the U-23 team. — KZL
