Myanmar U-22 team arrive in Japan for international friendly

Myanmar National U-22 Team arrived in Japan for an international friendly against Japan U-22 at Fukuda Denshi Arena in Chiba on Wednesday 11 March.

After overnight flight and early morning arrival, the Myanmar players and staff members looked somewhat tired but worked on a light, a one-hour training session for the upcoming match in the evening under cold and rainy weather.

Head Coach and Players' Comments

Kyi Lwn, Head Coach
First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Japan Football Association for the invitation. This upcoming match is a big chance for us where we can play against Japan and, at the same time, it’s a great preparation opportunity for the AFC U-23 Championship 2016 Qualifiers and the Southeast Asian Games. We will do our best and play a good match Wednesday to also help Japan prepare well.

GK 1   Kyaw Zin Phyo, Captain
I really look forward to playing against a high-level team like Japan. We also got well-prepared for the AFC U-23 Championship 2016 Qualifiers in Taiwan this month. This friendly must be a good experience, so both Japan and Myanmar will give it our all and show high-level performance to make it a good match.

MF 6   Hlaing Bo Bo
It was the first time to go outside of Myanmar to land in another country. Of course, it’s my first time to visit Japan. I’m bit tired because of the long flight, but I will get enough rest to get ready for the match. I think we will get a lot to learn from Japanese football. We will try our best to make it a nice match.
