MYANMAR midfielder David Htan,
who is playing for domestic club
Shan United FC in Myanmar National
League, is expected to become
one of the five impact players
in the Group-A of AFF Suzuki Cup
2018 as well as a collection of probable
starlets across the ten AFF
Suzuki Cup teams.
Four other impact players are
Pham Duc Huy from Viet Nam, Norshahrul
Idlan Talaha from Malaysia
Soukaphone Vongchiengkham from
Laos and Brak Thiva from Cambodia.
These five impact players are crucial
‘building blocks’ of their national teams.
They can save their national teams by
giving much help whenever their teams
are in crisis.
David Htan will be likely to have an
important role to play in controlling a
back four against some dangerous Group
A forwards. Even though he’s not the
tallest of defenders, he can correct a bad
situation with a good positional sense,
reading of the play and ability to cleanly
win one-on-one challenges.
He is the two-time Myanmar National
League winning player with Yangon
United FC. He moved to Shan United
for the 2018 football season. He won the
best youth play of the year 2011.
