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.
