On Friday, June 16, a friendly match between China and Myanmar will take place at the Dalian Barracuda Bay Football Stadium in Dalian.
After a subpar start, The Dragon’s Team is looking to win for the first time in 2023. Aleksandar Jankovic’s team played New Zealand in two friendly matches in March, but neither one was successful. The first one ended in a goalless draw in Auckland, and a few days later, they lost 2-1 in Wellington.
China will try to up their game and find their best form before the Asia Cup, which takes place in January of next year. For this month’s double-header against Myanmar and Palestine, Jankovic has called up 24 players, including key striker Wu Lei, who has scored 27 goals in 81 games. Wang Qiuming, a midfielder for Tianjin Tigers, is the team’s only uncapped player.
In the meantime, Myanmar’s quest for an Asia Cup appearance for the first time since 1968 continued after their exit from the qualifiers in the third round last year. The Chinthe finished bottom of Group F after losing to Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Singapore in all three games. Their poor run continued in 2023 when Myanmar started the year with a 3-0 loss to Vietnam in the AFF Championship.
In the Tri-Nation Series, they played Kyrgyzstan to a 1-1 draw before falling to India 1-0. 20 players have been selected for this month’s doubleheader against China and Macau by manager Michael Feichtenbeiner. Maung Maung Lwin, a striker from Thailand who is based there and leads the team with nine goals, is one of ten who are based outside of the country. Zwe Khant Min, a defender for Shan United, is the team’s only uncapped player.

China vs Myanmar Prediction :
Although China is not particularly strong, they appear to have a better team than Myanmar, which is currently mired in stagnation. The Dragon’s Team also has the advantage of playing at home, so they should be able to easily defeat the Chinthe.
Prediction: China 2-0 Myanmar
China vs Myanmar Head to head :
With 14 goals scored and no goals conceded in their previous four matches against Myanmar, China has prevailed. Their most recent meeting was in May 2018. Myanmar has lost ten of their 13 games, going winless. China has never won a game in 2023, drawing twice and losing once. In three of their last five games, China has failed to score.
China vs Myanmar Team News :
One of China’s most important midfielders, Wu Xi, who has 82 caps for the national team and is captain of Shanghai Shenhua, will be out of the game. However, Wu Lei, who has appeared in 81 China caps and scored 14 goals in 18 league games since returning to Shanghai Port last year, will be available to them.
Maung Maung Lwin, 27, has nine goals in 57 caps for his home nation. Myanmar, on the other hand, will be hoping that he can reach double digits on Friday. David Htan, the Yangon United defender, has 73 caps, so the visitors won’t have his experience at the back.
