Impressive figures from Vietnam and Myanmar
Not predictable like Myanmar
Attacking, attacking and attacking is what fans of "White Angels" were satisfied with after two impressive wins by the home team. It's no coincidence that coach Antoine Hee's team is leading on the table by the strength of the Myanmar striker who is too good. The proof: 7 goals with accurate shots up to 38.5%.
To be fair, Myanmar's goals so far are quite easy. Not fancy, sophisticated but full of fear because of the ability to take advantage of opportunities too. Aung Thu and his colleagues have full speed on the ball.

"Angels" fears flooded Laos and Cambodia, leading to defensive turmoil. Just like that, Myanmar has made opponents pay dearly.
On the other hand, coach Antoine Hey found himself worthy of being a "master" in tactics and personnel placement. The last two matches, the team is the opponent before leading. Shame in Myanmar's defense is clearly seen when facing technical players such as Chan Vathanaka (Cambodia) and "Messi Lao" Vongchiengkham Soukaphone.
However, the adjustment of coach Antoine Hey helped Myanmar not only chaos but also the better the stone. They repeatedly place the game, master the game and make the enemy make mistakes.
Two impressive rolls against Laos and Cambodia have made Myanmar very unexpected in the AFF Cup 2018. Although in the previous tournament, Myanmar always lacked experience and skills in important matches.
However, since the German strategists came to power, everything began to change positively with Myanmar football. This causes quite a lot of interest because the "White Angels" also take advantage of human benefits to win 6 absolute points.
Training and the danger of wings are named Aung Thu
In terms of people, Myanmar does not have many prominent factors. The most impressive and interesting name for Vietnamese fans is probably Aung Thu – the "White Angel" main striker in the 2018 AFF Cup.

Fast, strong, strong and technical, Aung Thu is full of the essence of the top table plants. The 22-year-old has scored nine goals for Myanmar after 29 appearances, scoring 0.31 goals per match.
However, the strength of Aung Thu is not just a goal. He is able to play in, extensive activities, attract defenders to help the team to maximize the end.
In the last two games, the main striker Burma was responsible for his tenth tenth role. He admitted playing behind striker Hlaing Bo Bo, something he often did in the Tero Police shirt. Thailand League 1.
On the other hand, Myanmar's maneuverability and danger also comes from very offensive defensive play. Coach Antoine Hey formed the "White Angels" tactic with a familiar 4-4-2.

Not surprisingly, Myanmar played to attack Vietnam with the host advantage with the support of almost three thousand spectators. This can be considered a real test of the ability to withstand the pressure of Vietnam's defense space. Obviously, Myanmar is very dangerous with a fast-paced counter-attack game and coach Hang-seo is estimated to have a hard day's work.
The mission changes color in the AFF Cup
In the past, Myanmar's best record was only the 2016 AFF Cup. Before the AFF Cup in 2018, Burma was not considered very competitive when the country had some fluctuations on the bench.

Good results forced Zeise to split the "White Angels" hot seat to make room for compatriot Antoine Hey. Disappointment and doubt are what football fans in Myanmar feel when they see an unimpressive resume from the 48-year-old strategist.
However, all doubts have been replaced by the conviction that the progress that coach Antoine has brought to Myanmar football. Despite having suffered a losing streak against Bahrain and Bolivia, Myanmar's game has increased.
Indeed, the revolution called "Antoine Hey" seems to have slightly changed the face of Myanmar football. The tactic used by German strategists is still a defensive counterattack with midfield maneuverability. Myanmar brought strong confidence to the home fans, especially after impressive performances in the last two battles.
In Antoine's hands, the "White Angels" underwent certain transformations and transformations, and it is not surprising that Myanmar made a story about Vietnam with a higher level in confrontation that only To win, one of the two teams will win the right to the semifinals.
History tilted to Vietnam when they won 3, drew 1 and only lost one of the last 5 confrontations between the two teams. But, in the nature of the six-point match, Myanmar is desperate to reclaim its debt two years ago until the AFF Cup swings.
