Yangon United secured a place in Group F for the AFC Cup 2020 after beating Brunei club Indera SC yesterday in the 2nd leg of the play-offs for the championship at the Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon.
Yangon dominated over Indera SC from the kick-off, with youth player Kaung Htet Soe and foreign players Emmanuel and Barfo creating goal chances.
At 12 minutes, Yangon United got a goal chance when the team’s star player Mg Mg Lwin crossed over to Barfo, but Barfo’s attempt missed the goal, hitting the goal bar.
But, as the ball bounced back, Kaung Htet Soe stepped in and kicked it directly into the net, scoring the first goal for Yangon United.
Yangon’s lead did not last long with Indera SC scoring the equalizer over a penalty kick at 37 minutes. The goal was scored by Rodrigo Tosi.
The score was 1-1 at the end of the first half.
Yangon United increased their tempo during the second half. Emmanuel scored the second leading goal for the team at 63 minutes.
After the goal, Yangon United substituted Zin Min Tun and Than Paing in place of Kaung Htet Soe and Emmanuel.
Than Paing scored the third goal for Yangon United at 77 minutes off an assist from teammate Mg Mg Lwin.
With the win over Indera SC, Yangon United has secured a place in Group F for the AFC Cup 2020 and will face Vietnam club Ho Chi Minh City F.C., Singapore club Hougang United, and Laos club Lao Toyota in the group stage. —Lynn Thit (Tgi)
