Team Myanmar fail to make next stage despite beating China 3-1

The Myanmar futsal team won the Group A final match of the Futsal Asian Cup 2024 against the Chinese team in Thailand yes­terday, but had to leave the group.


The Myanmar team played hard be­cause they could only hope to advance to the next round if they beat the Chinese team by a wide margin of goals. But, Myanmar was only able to score a few goals against the Chinese team, and as Viet Nam lost to the Thai team by only one goal, team Myanmar lost the chance to advance to the next round.


Hlaing Min Tun scored two goals for Myanmar and Ko Ko Lwin, one goal for team Myanmar to secure a victory against China.


After the group A matches, Thailand garnered full nine points in three wins while Viet Nam took the second place, earning four points in one win, one draw and one loss. Both Thailand and Viet Nam had al­ready advanced to the semifinal of the tour­ney. Team Myanmar, who have collected four points and team China, who secured no win, was eliminated from the group stage.
