Myanmar women’s national football team beat Laos women’s football team 3-0 in their first group match of the SEA Games women’s football tournament which was held in Viet Nam yesterday night.
The match between Myanmar and Laos will normally be played at 3:30 pm Myanmar Standard Time, but due to heavy rain, the match was changed to 9:00 pm Myanmar Standard Time.
Myanmar team won the opening match and got full points, but struggled to show good form as usual in the opening matches.
The team made a lot of mistakes during their attack due to the player’s eagerness to score many goals and were not able to get as many chances as they should because of the frequent offence.
Only one goal was scored in the first half, but more goals were scored in the second half to collect the valuable three points.
The Myanmar team was able to play with an advantage from the beginning of the match, but due to the desire to score goals and the Lao team’s defensive style, only one goal was scored in the first half.
The Myanmar team created many chances to score in the first half but only one goal was scored by striker Win Theingi Tun in the 30th minute.
In the second half, only the Myanmar team continued to dominate the match and in the 57th minute, team captain Khin Malar Tun scored the second goal with a header.
Captain Khin Marlar Tun, who scored the second goal for the Myanmar team, scored the third goal in the 68th minute.
After a three-goal win, the Myanmar team head coach made substitutions for a better tactic.
