Myanmar edge closer to qualifying to the AFF Suzuki Cup in November after recording a dominant 3-0 win over Cambodia.
The White Angels started the game with intent as nippy winger, David Htan registered the match’s first real effort on goal. His cheeky effort was denied by the crossbar with Cambodia’s custodian, Um Vichet in no man’s land.
Buoyed by a strong home support, Myanmar relentlessly attacked the Cambodian defence marshaled by Tieng Tiny.
A neat link-up play between Kyi Lin and Kyaw Win created a clear cut chance for the latter who only manages a weak effort that went wide. It was a beautiful move that deserves a better finish by Kyaw Win.
Myanmar picked up where they left off in the second half with Cambodia yet again forced to sit back and withstand the pressure.
The deadlock was finally broken by arguably Myanmar’s best player of the tournament, Kyi Lin who applied the finish to a fine cross by David Htan.
The Burmese national team wasted no time in doubling their lead as substitute striker, Kaung Sithu capitalized on a defensive mistake to score the second goal and seal a comfortable lead over the visitors.
Not satisfied with the two goals, Myanmar scored the third through defender, Phyo Aung whose delightful free kick sailed into Um Vichet's goal. It was a perfect end to a dominant performance by the White Angels.
