Qualification history
Myanmar’s debut preliminary campaign did not come until eight years ago, when they were thrashed 11-0 by China in the first round of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifying. Progress was made on the road to Brazil 2014, though, as the White Angels edged Mongolia 2-1 over two legs to reach the second round. Further development was made in Group G on the road to Russia 2018, as the side picked up eight points and put in solid performances in a narrow defeat to Korea Republic and a draw away to Lebanon on the final matchday.
