Which players have Myanmar picked for the 2022 AFF Championship?

Two time Asian Games winners Myanmar enter the 2022 AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup in Group B, which consists of Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Laos.

They came fourth in Group A in last year's tournament, behind Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines and will be hoping to spring a couple of surprises this time around.

Myanmar will kick off their tournament against Malaysia on December 21.

Head coach Antoine Hey has already selected his provisional 25-man squad, so let's take a look at the players who made the cut!

  • Kyaw Zin Phyo of Myanmar

    GOALKEEPERS

    The battle for the number one spot at the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 is between Kyaw Zin Phyo and San Sat Naing.

    Kyaw Zin Phyo will fancy his chances as the more experienced of the two, but San Sat Naing will be hopeful of getting his chance, too.

    Third choice Tun Nanda Oo Dara is yet to play a senior international game for Myanmar.

  • David Htan of Myanmar

    DEFENDERS

    David Htan, Wai Yan Oo and Kyaw Zin Lwin are most probably their first-choice defenders, with the likes of Zaw Ye Tun, Ye Min Thu providing solid alternatives.

    Hein Phyo Win could also get the nod in defence as his side's only defender plying his trade abroad at Ratchaburi.

  • Maung Maung Lwin

    MIDFIELDERS

    Hlaing Bo Bo will aim to protect Myanmar's defence as his side's deepest midfielder, while Yan Naing Oo will take up more of an attacking role in Myanmar.

    Star player Maung Maung Lwin, meanwhile, will be adding a creative spark from midfield.

    Kyaw Min Oo and Myat Kaung Khant are also strong candidates for a starting berth.

  • Hein Htet Aung, 2020

    ATTACKERS

    Win Naing Tun is his side's most experienced option in attack, with promising youngster Hein Htet Aung another potential dangerman who can provide pace and trickery down the right wing.

    STRONGEST XI

    Myanmar's strongest formation will like be a 5-3-2.

    Kyaw Zin Phyo is the number one choice for Myanmar in goal.

    The experienced David Htan is set to start at right back with Zaw Ye Tun, Ye Min Thu and Wai Yan Oo slotting in as the three centre-backs and Kyaw Zin Lwin as their left-back.

    A three man midfield of Hlaing Bo Bo, Yan Naing Oo and Maung Maung Lwin seems the most likely, with

    Myanmar XI (5-3-2): Kyaw Zin Phyo; David Htan, Zaw Ye Tun, Ye Min Thu, Wai Yan Oo, Kyaw Zin Lwin; Hlaing Bo Bo, Yan Naing Oo, Maung Maung Lwin; Win Naing Tun, Hein Htet Aung

    NOTABLE ABSENTEES

    As with every major tournament, there are always high-profile names who miss out for whatever reason and the AFF Cup is no exception.
