Kyi Lin David Htan Yan Paing
Gifted youngster, operates behind the strikers across the whole width of the pitch, good technique and quick dribbling, also a goal scorer, the brightest hope for the future of football in Myanmar. A classic winger, lives by the touchline (either right or left) to beat his opponent and deliver crosses for the strikers. Also a very hard worker, guaranteed to run tirelessly for the whole 90 minutes. A popular face in the SE international football scene, he is coming back from injury but he is expected to provide Myanmar with goals and experience.
