The Myanmar national football team is currently preparing for the qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 against Kyrgyzstan. The match is scheduled to take place on 10 October at the Dolen Omurzakov Stadium in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
Myanmar head coach Miodrag Radulovic recently announced the names of 29 players chosen for the upcoming World Cup qualifier match, according to the Myanmar Football Federation.
Four goalkeepers have been selected on the team — Kyaw Zin Phyo, Pyae Phyo Aung, Pyae Lian Aung, and Sann Sat Naing.
The ten defenders selected on the squad are Zaw Min Tun, Soe Moe Kyaw, Zaw Lin, Zaw Ye Tun, Pyae Phyo Zaw, David Htan, Kyaw Zin Lwin, Win Moe Kyaw, Nanda Kyaw, and Hein Thiha Zaw.
There are eight midfielders on the team: Yan Aung Kyaw, Lwin Moe Aung, Nyein Chan Aung, Hlaing Bo Bo, Maung Maung Lwin, Kyi Lin, Si Thu Aung, and Suan Lan Mang.
The team also includes seven strikers: Kyaw Ko Ko, Aung Thu, Win Naing Soe, Than Paing, Kaung Sithu, Dway Ko Ko Chit, and Zin Min Tun.
Team Myanmar began their special training session on 25 September and will leave for Kyrgyzstan next month.

In their first meet on 10 October, 2017, Myanmar played to a 2-2 draw against Kyrgyzstan, and in the second meet, Myanmar lost 5-1 to Kyrgyzstan.—Lynn Thit (Tgi)
