As part of preparation for taking part in the 2018 Suzuki Cup, Myanmar national selected men’s football squad faced a loss to its debut friendly match against Al Duhail SC with a narrow margin of 1-2 in Doha, Qatar on 19 October.
Myanmar’s head coach Antoine Hey made changes a little to the lineup used in the match against Bahrain and mended the blunders experienced in the match against Bahrain. Zin Min Tun was stationed at the front area as a lone striker.
Except Zaw Min Tun, Aung Thu, Ye Ko Oo, David Dan, Kaung Set Naing, Hsan Set Naing and Phone Thitsa Min, the head coach made substitutions of the remaining players in the first half and the second half.
Al Duhail SC, which is comprised of most talented players, led the first half with 2-0. Than Htet Aung gave an equalizer for Myanmar, taking an advantage of the fault made by the defender of the opponents’ team at 76th minute of the second half. —Htut Htut (Twantay)
