YANGON (3 April 2012) – The Myanmar national Under-22 side will be heading to South Korea later this month for training in preparation for the AFC U22 Asian Cup qualifiers that will be played in June this year.
For the qualifiers Myanmar, who recently signed Park Seong Hwa as the new chief coach, have been placed in Group G where they will be up against South Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, Chinese Taipei and the Philippines .
While in South Korea, the 26-member strong squad has arranged to play five friendly matches against club sides.
In the meantime, Stefan Hansson has been re-appointed as the Technical Director of the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) following a closed door meeting with U Zaw Zaw, the president of the MFF.
Hansson, who had led Myanmar to the bronze at the SEA Games 2011 in Jakarta last year, had earlier resigned from his post as MFF Technical Director due to some misunderstanding.
