National Under-19 football team fall to hosts Myanmar

Friday, October 2, 2015

THE national Under-19 football team (Tabuan U-19) succumbed to their second straight defeat in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-19 Championship qualifiers after they fell 4-0 to Myanmar on Wednesday, at Youth Training Centre, Yangon.
Brunei previously lost to Hong Kong by the same scoreline in their opener on Monday.
According to the AFC website, hosts Myanmar took the lead in the seventh minute through Zin Phyto Aung’s penalty kick.
Myanmar then caused woes for Brunei with two quick-fire goals from Ye Yint Aung and Htoo Kyant Lwin in the 27th and 29th minute.
Aung Zin Phyo only took 60 seconds into the second half to add another goal for Myanmar to put the game beyond Tabuan U-19’s reach.
The Sultanate will continue their campaign against Vietnam today before playing their last game of the qualifying round against Hong Kong on Tuesday.
The last qualifier in Thailand in 2013 saw the national Under-19 football team end the tournament without a point.
They started off with a 6-0 loss to North Korea 6-0 getting hammered 7-0 by Thailand. They finished with a 3-1 loss at the hands of Singapore.
