The Sheffield United winger was born in the Umpiem Mai Refugee Camp, while he and his family of ethnic Karens, a minority group who have faced oppression in Myanmar, had already been on their trip to part away from his motherland.

It was reportedly that Kler Heh will make his international debut for The White Angels on September 7, in a friendly game versus New Zealand.
