Myanmar currently experiencing a great form, with three consecutive wins. Especially the last two matches in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, against Tajikistan and Mongolia, they came up with impressive performances to remain victorious.

Much like Myanmar, Malaysia will also face Bahrain away on March 21. Tan Cheng Hoe will hope to keep up with the form the team is having, as they had 2 wins against the 2 ASEAN teams in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers.

Also on March 21, Singapore will encounter UAE as a roster test for both teams. A win right now is not the utter priority for both Tatsuma Yoshida and Ivan Jovanović, as both teams will have the chance to test the players' quality and tactics for later competitive matches.

Vietnam and head coach Park Hang Seo will hope to bounce back after an embarrassing tournament in Thailand. They will face Iraq at home on March 26.
