India vs Myanmar Preview:

The Indian men’s Football team won at the Asian Games for the first time in nine years, defeating Bangladesh 1-0 in the second game of the 2023 competition. The Blue Tigers’ most recent triumph was a 4-1 victory in the 2010 edition. Without a question, skipper Sunil Chhetri was the game changer, with his late calm penalty giving India the lead.

Because of the short time frame, Igor Stimac’s team did not have any training sessions prior to the game versus Bangladesh. With a two-day break before the key match against Myanmar, ndia will be able to contribute more with their play now that they have increased squad depth as well as conditioning.

The resurgence of the Blue Tigers is a major source of concern in Myanmar. Their opening-day victory over Bangladesh was in vain as they were defeated 4-0 by China. Even their victory over the Bangla Tigers was narrow, and it came courtesy of an own goal.

Myanmar trails India in total goals scored, with no goals scored by its players. The recent SAFF champions, on the other hand, will be looking to duplicate their Tri-Nation Cup victory over Myanmar from March.

 Indian Men's Football Team will aim for win and qualification to next round during ndia vs Myanmar LIVE in Asian Games 2023
