With less than two weeks to go to the AFF Under-18 Championship 2019, Timor Leste head coach Andy Susanto said that his team is almost prepared for what lies ahead.
The team has been in hard preparation for the last month for the meet slated for 6-19 August 2019, and Andy feels confident that they can give a good account of themselves.
“I believe that we are at least 80% prepared for the championship,” said Andy, who had previously coached the Sriwijaya U21 team
“We have prepared as well as we could where for now, the only issue is the combination play with the players needing to adjust to each other. And for that we will have time.”
Andy has been hard at work in Dili as he took his players through the paces where they honed up their attacking and also defending system.
“We have identified the 23 players who we will bring to Vietnam,” he quipped.
For the AFF U18 Championship, the Timorese have been placed in Group A against Myanmar, Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines and Brunei DS.
