The second day of the 19th Asian Games men’s football tournament, hosted by China, continued yesterday, with the Myanmar team losing 0-4 to the host Chinese team.
With the defeat, Myanmar will have to wait until the last match to advance to the next round. The goals conceded in the first half forced team Myanmar to lose.
The Myanmar squad made some changes to the starting lineup and launched with young players. The host team scored three goals from 15 to 22 minutes and added another goal near the end of the first half.
The winning goals for the Chinese team were scored by Tan Long in the 15 and 19 minutes, Jhiwan in the 22 minutes and Wei Qidi in the 44 minutes. Both teams failed to score in the second half, so the match ended with the same result as the first half.
In the other Group A match, India beat Bangladesh 1-0. After playing two games, the host Chinese team advanced to the next round with two wins and six points, while Myanmar and India had three points each, while the Bangladesh team lost both games and has not yet scored a point.
The Myanmar team will play against the Indian team on 24 September as the final group game. — Ko Nyi Lay/KZL
