Darul Makmur Stadium - Kuantan
 
 
That is all from me, follow me (@keeshchaos) and Goal Malaysia (Goal_MY) on Twitter for more updates. Signing off!
 
 
And the referee blows for full time! Malaysia have claimed an immense 2-1 victory over Myanmar and Ong Kim Swee will be happy with the display of his men in the second half
 
90′ +3
Yellow/Red Kyi Lin
Kyi Lin sent off for protesting to the referee, with regards to the scuffle just now. A shame for Myanmar, considering that the match is just moments away from ending
 
90′ +3
Yellow Card Ye Lin Aung
 
90′ +3
A scuffle has broke out between Thamil Arasu and Lin Aung. Both men have been booked as a result
 
90′ +2
Yellow Card Thamil Arasu
 
90′ +2
As of now, the Malaysian players are camped in their half. Things are getting very tensed now, OKS will be hoping that his men have enough in them to stay strong for the remaining two minutes
 
89′
4 minutes of added time. Myanmar continue knocking on the door
 
87′
Myanmar are dominating possession late in the game now, it'll be a shame for Malaysian fans if they do equalize. Can OKS' men hold on?
 
85′
Substitution Mohd Azrif Nasrulhaq bin Badrul K. Reuben
 
83′
That goal has effectively silenced Wan Zack's critics, after the winger missed his penalty against Singapore the other day. Majestic strike from the winger and he seems more confident on the flanks now. Can Malaysia push for a third goal?
 
78′
Goal Wan Zack Haikal bin Wan Noor
GOAL! Wan Zack puts Malaysia ahead with a majestic curling free kick from just outside the box! Amazing goal!
 
74′
Junior Eldstal fires against the post! The Sarawak FA midfielder came very close to giving Malaysia the lead, but his volley from close range rammed against the post!
 
70′
The match is getting pretty heated now, with both teams eager to not concede.
 
68′
Since that goal, Malaysia have looked much more determined to seize the lead. We should have an exciting final 20 minutes with us!
 
67′
Substitution Nazmi Faiz Saiful Ridzuwan Selamat
 
64′
Goal Irfan Fazail
GOAL! Irfan Fazail restores parity for Malaysia with a close range finish!
 
62′
Wan Zack Haikal fires another free-kick directly towards the Myanmar goal. He has had a frustrating game so far. Syahrul Azwari seen warming up on the sidelines as well now
 
61′
Substitution D. Saarvindran Syahrul Azwari bin Ibrahim
 
57′
Tan Win ran down the right flank there on a counter attack, but Nik Shahrul executed a perfectly timed slide tackle to clear the ball. Top notch defending
 
56′
Yellow Card Kyi Lin
 
53′
Kyi Lin booked for a foul, he has probably been Myanmar's best player thus far.
 
50′
Thamil Arasu has looked a bit off his game tonight, especially in terms of positioning
 
47′
Kim Swee's men are pushing hard, switching flanks and spreading play effectively thus far. Lets see what is in store
 
 
Second half resumes!
 
 
And it's half time here in Kuantan. Myanmar have surprisingly taken the lead through Lin Tun. Ong Kim Swee will be having a lot to say to his men now, but stay tuned with us for the second half updates!
 
43′
Ong Kim Swee's men pushing hard for an equalizer, but being tamed away by the Myanmar defence, which has looked solid in the first half
 
41′
Ong Kim Swee looks a frustrated figure on the touchline. Malaysia will need to step things up after the break
 
40′
Substitution Kyaw Zayar Min David Htan
 
37′
Goal Nay Lin Tun
 
37′
GOAL! Myanmar take the lead through Lin Tun's header!
 
33′
Wan Zack presented with another ball there on the right flank, but his first touch was frustrating yet again. Myanmar defence ended up clearing the ball away
 
28′
Myanmar have worked hard in terms of ball retention, but they seem to lack creativity in the final third. Long balls are being dealt with terrifically by Fadhli Shas
 
24′
Wan Zack with a clear cut chance there, but unfortunately he missed his attempt! Frustrating for the Malaysian winger
 
22′
Ko Ko brings down Azrif with a rash challenge. The Malaysian physio is on the pitch and hopefully there's nothing too serious
 
20′
Malaysia come close there! Wan Zack's powerful free kick rattles the bar, and Fadhli Shas heads the rebound over! That was close
 
17′
The game is picking up pace now. Myanmar launched a counter attack there, but the shot from Zayar Win was saved well by Izham. Now both teams are pushing hard
 
13′
Kyi Lin already causing troubles for Malaysia. The speedy winger needs to be marked carefully tonight as he is capable of being destructive. Ironically, he is playing in the stadium of the team that has shown interest in signing him from Yangoon United!
 
11′
Wan Zack creatively tips the corner kick to Irfan who is just outside the penalty box, but the latter's shot sails way above the cross bar. Interesting move there
 
7′
Myanmar pushed forward a counter attack there just now, and Izham Tarmizi came way beyond his goalpost to seize possession. Kyi Lin of Myanmar applied pressure and Izham was forced to put it out of play
 
4′
It looks as though Saarvindran is predominantly playing on the left flank, with Thamil alone upfront. OKS looking to win the midfield battle with five men
 
2′
Malaysia already taking charge of possession thus far. Nazmi seems to be playing a pivotal role in it, with his composure. This should be an exciting match!
 
1′
And it's kick off here in Kuantan!
