The Burmese woman’s football team are gearing up for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
Expectations are high, but the team still have the momentum which carried them through last year’s SEA Games.
In order to make it to the Olympics, the team will have to get through three qualifier stages. The first stage group matches are against, Burma, India, Sri Lanka and Bahrain, and only one team will make it to the second round.
Though the SEA tournament ended with a heartbreaking loss to Thailand by sudden death penalties after a 120-minute match, the woman’s football team are looking to make up for this in the Olympic lead-up.
The first-stage qualifiers are scheduled to kick off between 9 and 15 March.
