Myanmar U16 coach Eric Williams was pleased to start the ASEAN Football Federation U16 Championship with a 3-1 win over Singapore at the Olympic Stadium, Phnom Penh, Cambodia on July 28. But the former Yangon United coach believes there is more to come from his young charges, who he took command of only last week.
The Myanmar Football Federation announced via social media yesterday that it has approached 18-year-old Karen refugee Kler Heh – who plays his football for English League One (third tier) side Sheffield United – about the possibility of representing Myanmar at the international level.
The likely candidates for this season’s Myanmar National League – 1 relegation battle seem a little clearer after the weekend results. The games of Week 13 saw the current seventh, eighth and ninth-placed teams defeat the 10th, 11th and 12th-placed sides respectively.
The first game to be televised under a new deal struck between the Myanmar National League and Myawaddy Television will be screened on July 25, and will show second-place Ayeyawady United strive to keep the season alive when they host Yangon United – leaders of the MNL-1 by 11 points.
