Myanmar faces another heavy defeat in World Cup qualifiers

Myanmar faces another heavy defeat in World Cup qualifiers

Playing at home can be an advantage for Myanmar, however, it is not enough for them to gain any point against Tajikistan. The Central Asia team is now at another level that Myanmar can not reach.

Myanmar vs Tajikistan match information

Time: 18:30 (GMT+8) on November 14th

Venue: Mandalar Thiri Stadium

‎‎Competition: Asia World Cup Qualifying

At present, Myanmar is the only team in Group F losing all the matches they played. As a result, coach Miodrag Radulovic was sacked then former boss Antoine Hey came back to Myanmar national football team. It shows a dilemma of the Myanmar Football Federation when they can not find a suitable manager for the hot seat. Coincidentally, Antoine Hey was the man fired after Myanmar exited the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 in the group stages last December.

Moreover, Myanmar's form at the FIFA World Cup qualification was a nightmare. Starting by a shocking losing match against Mongolia in early September, they go on being beaten by Japan. The worst scenario happened last month when they conceded 7 goals when they faced Kyrgyzstan. After 3 matches, Myanmar's players could not score any goals as well as played worse game after game.

Although Myanmar currently gained positive results by defeating Nepal and drawing Turkmenistan a few days ago, they still have no chance to play against Tajikistan at the same level. After 3 matches in the World Cup qualification, Tajikistan won 2 games. Japan is the only team that can defeat them in Group F. Consequently, a winning match for Tajikistan can be easily foretold.
