Malaysia play out 1-1 draw with Myanmar

The Harimau Muda were held to a 1-1 draw by Myanmar in their SEA Games 2019 Group A opener today at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila, Philippines.

Velizar Popov’s Myanmar side took the lead in the 13th minute through Soe Moe Kyaw who tucked away an inviting corner kick from captain Hlaing Bo Bo.

And Malaysia equalised in the 23rd minute courtesy of a well-placed header by Fagiano Okayama forward Hadi Fayyadh. Myanmar defender Aung Naing Win made a woeful back-pass which was intercepted by Akhyar Rashid who then proceeded to square the ball to Fayyadh.

Despite coming close in the dying stages of the game, Malaysia were unable to find the winning goal and had to settle for a 1-1 draw instead.
