Football: Burma on verge of qualification in Asian Cup

Burma’s U-19s need only a draw against Iran this evening to ensure qualification in the ASIAN U-19 men’s football championships, currently being hosted in Rangoon and Naypyidaw. After a 0-0 draw with Yemen on the opening day, the Burmese team recorded a spectacular 3-0 victory against arch-rivals Thailand on Saturday. Burma and Yemen now stand on top of the group with 4 points each, Thailand has three points, and Iran no points.
