Myanmar out of Challenge Cup after Krygyzstan defeat

Myanmar were eliminated from the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup on Friday after losing 1-0 to Krygyzstan in their final Group A game at the Addu Football Stadium.

The only goal of the game came in the 18th minute when the Myanmar defence allowed a long clearance from Pavel Matiash to bounce; Vladimir Verevkin pouncing on the loose ball before firing a shot past Thiha Sithu.

The defeat meant that the White Angels finished bottom of the group, although their opponents also failed to qualify for the semi-finals as they ended the campaign third on the table after Palestine and Maldives played out a 0-0 draw at the Galolhu National Stadium.

The Palestinians progressed to the top four and will now meet the runners-up in Group B, while hosts Maldives will play the runners-up.
