In the meantime, the Philippines got the start they wanted when they edged Myanmar 5-4 with Misagh Bahadoran scoring all five goals in the process. The nippy forward was on target in the second, third, 22nd, 23rd and 30th minute before Myanmar replied with their first goal of the game through Pyae Phyo Maung in the 26th minute.
The last four minute of the tie gave some harrowing moments for the Philippines where they had to withstood the Myanmar onslaught as the other Pyae Phyo Maung scored the second goal on 29 minute, Tin Win Ko Ko (34th) and Than Wunna Aung (36th) attempted to close the gap. But the Philipines defence stood their ground to pick up their first three points of the competition.
