KUANTAN: Myanmar team manager Tin Myint Aung has warned his team against the threat posed by bottom-side Singapore in their final Merdeka Tournament group match at the Temerloh Stadium Wednesday night.
Myanmar are third in the standings with one point and have an outside chance of making the final. They need to beat the Lions and hope that Malaysia, who are already in the final, beat second-placed Thailand in Wednesday’s other match.
“Singapore will be out to end their winless run. They are still a dangerous side,” said Myint Aung who featured for Armed Forces during the Semi-Pro era in Malaysia.
Myanmar, however, will be without several key players. Kyi Lin is under suspension while skipper Kyaw Zayar Win and defender Thein Than Win are ruled out due to injuries.
“It will be a tough and tricky match, but we have enough quality players in the team to replace them,” said Myint Aung.
For Singapore, they are desperate to register their first win in the tournament.
Said assistant coach K. Balagumaran: “We don’t want to finish the group without a point. We might bring in new faces and I believe the players can get us a positive result.
“We watched the Malaysia-Myanmar match (on Monday). They are a side that play with passion.”
