Myanmar secures draw with Azkals

THE Azkals conceded a late goal in injury time and was held to a draw by host Myanmar in the first game of the AFC Challenge Cup Group A qualifiers.

The 1-1 draw is the third straight draw between the two squads after playing to scoreless draws in 2010 and 2007.

In the second game, Palestine blanked Bangladesh, 2-0, to vault to the top of the Group.

Palestine will next face the Philippines while Myanmar takes on Bangladesh next.

James Younghusband scored for the Azkals with a spot kick in the 74th after the Myanmar keeper roughed Yanti “Lolo” Barsales. The keeper was red carded and will sit out the next match.

Myanmar equalized off a free kick in the 93rd after a Simon Greatwich foul.
