Hosts Myanmar got off to a perfect start in the SEA Games as they beat Cambodia 3-0 in the opening game of Group B at the Thuwanna YTC Stadium in Yangon on Saturday evening.

The result puts Myanmar in first place ahead of Thailand on goal difference, who beat Timor Leste 3-1 earlier in the day.

Cambodia came closest to breaking the deadlock after 13 minutes when Thierry Chantha Bin’s short pass reached Sok Pheng, but the striker only managed to hit the bar.

It proved costly as four minutes later, Myanmar took the lead when Si Thu Aung’s corner kick reached centre back Zaw Min Tun, who headed the ball past goalkeeper Sou Yati.

The hosts then doubled their lead in the 35th minute when Kyi Lin’s cross from the right was headed in by Kyaw Ko Ko.  

Any thoughts of a comeback by Cambodia disappeared as soon as the second half began as Kyaw scored his second goal of the game in the 47th minute.

Kyaw's initial effort was blocked by a Cambodian defender on the goal line, but substitute Thein Than Win passed the rebound to the striker to score in his second attempt.

Myanmar coach Park Seong Hwa was contented with his team’s victory, and already has his eyes set on the next game against Timor Leste.

“I am satisfied with the team performance, and I will try my best for the next game,” he said.

“Timor Leste in appearance is weak, but they have good individual players, so there is a lot of preparation to be done.”
