Myanmar falls to Vietnam at youth tourney in China

Myanmar’s U-15 football team was left ruing missed chances after falling to Vietnam 2-1 at the inaugural  China-ASEAN youth tournament hosted by China.
While it matched Vietnam in possession and scoring opportunities, an inability to convert proved critical in Dongxing, Guanxi
Province.
In the first half, Myanmar threatened Vietnam’s net through quick passing and clever interplay, but the opponents responded with skilful counterattacks.
Vietnam opened the scoring in the fifth minute before Myanmar quickly struck back with an 11th-minute equaliser by Hein Htet Aung. Vietnam’s No.23 player put his team back in front with a 43rd-minute strike that proved to be the match-winner. Capitalizing on lapses in Myanmar’s play in the second half, Vietnam created a number of chances but was thwarted by last-ditch defending by Myanmar’s keeper and backline.—MFF
