Shan United has made four consecutive wins in the Week 4 of the Myanmar National League match after beating ISPE FC 3-2 at Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon yesterday. Shan United was able to remain at the top of the standings with a hundred per cent win.
However, due to the struggle and playing style of the ISPE FC, the Shan United team had to play hard and it was a good match with mutual goals. Both teams used key players throughout the match.
The ISPE team did not play defence but performed counter-attacks, so it was a good match and saw mutual goals. In the seventh minute of the match, the Shan United team broke the deadlock and Nanda Kyaw scored through a penalty kick.
After that, ISPE kept pressing to score an equalizer, and due to the good team play, Shan United’s defence was difficult to control ISPE strikers.
Near the end of the first half, the ISPE team scored an equalizer and Min Myat Soe scored.
In the second half, both teams were able to dominate each other, and in the 56th minute, Nanda Kyaw scored the second goal for Shan United, but in the 63rd minute, Min Myat Soe scored the equalizing goal for ISPE.
ISPE tried not to concede another goal, but they allowed another goal in the 83rd minute, and striker Sunday Mathew scored the winning goal for Shan United. Shan United team has won all four games and is leading with 12 points. Next, Yangon United will face Ayeyawady United on 20 July and Myawady FC will take on Rakhine United on 21 July. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
