Myanmar vs. Syria: World Cup Qualifying Preview

By Darren Plant, Senior Reporter | March 19, 2024


As the World Cup Qualifying journey continues, Syria faces a crucial fixture against Myanmar. While Syria aims to secure a win and climb to second place in Group B, Myanmar, the group's underdogs, have already conceded 11 goals in just two matches.

Syria's Recent Journey

Syria's Asian Cup journey earlier this year marked a significant milestone. Despite being underdogs, they progressed to the last-16 stage, where they faced Iran. Although they eventually lost on penalties, the experience was valuable for Hector Cuper's side.

In the ongoing Asian World Cup qualifying campaign, Syria started with a 1-0 victory over Myanmar. While their recent form has been inconsistent, they hope to secure enough points to advance as runners-up.

Myanmar's Challenge

Myanmar's path to this stage involved overcoming Macau in a two-legged tie. However, their step up in class has been evident. After a 5-0 defeat to Japan and a 6-1 loss against North Korea, they face an uphill battle against Syria.

Michael Feichtenbeiner's side will aim to avoid defeat and gain confidence in front of goal.

Team News

Myanmar's Hein Zeyar Lin may move to a central position, while Hein Htet Aung could feature further forward. Syria, on the other hand, will look to capitalize on their Asian Cup experience and secure a pivotal result.
