The Myanmar women’s national football team left for South Korea from the Yangon International Airport yesterday to compete in the third round of the 2020 AFC Women’s Olympics qualifying tournament.
The tourney will start on 3 February at the Jeju World Cup Stadium in Seogwipo, South Korea.
Twenty players have been chosen on the squad, and they have been accompanied by football coaches for the tourney.
Before the team’s departure from the Yangon International Airport, the Myanmar Football Federation president came and spoke words of encouragement to the players, according to the MFF.
“I am happy to see all the players trying their best, with unity. We are reaching the final round stage and at this stage, you all must not be disheartened even if the opponents are great teams. You all should take care of your health in different weather conditions,” the MFF president told the players.
Myanmar will play the opening match against South Korea at 4.30 p.m. Myanmar Standard Time on 3 February at the Jeju World Cup Stadium in Seogwipo.
The team will then take on Viet Nam on 6 February, while South Korea will face Viet Nam on 9 February at the same venue.—Lynn Thit (Tgi)
