AFF Cup: Myanmar Keeper And Coach Banned For One Match

The Group A disciplinary committee has handed out a one match suspension to Myanmar goalkeeper Aung Aung Oo and two other team officials for their actions during the match against Singapore yesterday.

Myanmar, unhappy with the referee for allowing a goal from Singapore, protested the decision and held up play for some eight minutes. The incident happened in the second half when a quickly taken freekick by Singapore resulted in the third goal of the match.

The Myanmar keeper had charged at the referee and pushed him and for that he was immediately given the red card. The other Myanmar players also surrounded the match official from the Philippines.

Head Coach Carlos Antonio Falopa and Team Leader Thein Aung also went into the pitch.

The disciplinary committee, which met last night, issued the relevant letters to the Myanmar team. With the suspensions, the goalkeeper, coach and team leader will have to watch the match from the stands of the Jalak Harupat Stadium in Bandung tomorrow evening.
