Myanmar advanced to the semifinals of the AFF U-18 Championship by beating Vietnam, one of ASEAN’s strongest football teams, 2-1 yesterday at Thuwunna Stadium.
        The match was an extremely important one for Myanmar, and the fans helped the home team with lots of cheering during the closely contested match.
        Vietnam scored the opening goal during the first minute of play when Nguyen Hong Son buried the ball into the net.
        Myanmar tried to get into the game, but Vietnam played confidently during the first half.
        Vietnam lost focus in the second half as the Myanmar footballers improved their attacking, with Myanmar star players Pyae Sone Naing, Win Naing Tun and Myat Kaung Khant showed their speedy play throughout the second half.
        At 74 minutes, a long pass over Viet Nam defenders from Pyae Sone Naing allowed Kaung Khant to score, prompting the Myanmar fans at Thuwunna Stadium to erupt in cheers.
        Viet Nam struggled to regain focus on the game in which only a draw would be enough for them to make the semifinal.
        But four minutes before the end of the match, Myanmar scored the winning goal when Lwin Moe Aung sent the ball into the opponent’s net at 86 minutes mark.
        The win allows Myanmar to advance to the semifinals as the second-place finisher in Group B. Indonesia finished first in Group B play.
        Myanmar will face Malaysia in a semifinal match on Friday at Thuwunna Stadium.
