Indonesia down hosts’ hopes at SEA Games

Football can be cruel at times, none more so than in the case of 27th SEA Games hosts Myanmar, whose U23 team were knocked out of the men’s competition after a 1-0 loss to Indonesia on Monday night despite holding a better goal difference with both ending the group phase on seven points.

A 36th minute penalty by Alfin Tuasalamony at Yangon’s Thuwunna YTC Stadium was all that stood between the sides, as Indonesia progressed to tomorrow’s semi-finals along with Group B toppers Thailand due to their superior head-to-head record over Myanmar.

The result sparked a riot in the former capital, with dozens of local football fans clashing with police late into the night.
