Burma maintains unbeaten run in SEA Games football

The Burmese men’s football team survived a scare to beat Timor Leste 3-1 at the Thuwunna Stadium in Rangoon on Monday. Burma started strongly and midfielder Kyaw Zayar Win scored with a deflected free kick after just 12 minutes, but the East Timorese fought back and stunned the Burmese fans with a goal in the 36th minute.

Burma had to wait until the 70th minute of the game when Kyaw Ko Ko stepped up to slot home a penalty. Kyi Lin clinched victory seven minutes later.
