With good physical strength and techniques, U23 Philippines leveled the score by Beic Hervas in the 34th minute.

Two minutes later, the Philippines enjoyed a penalty to increase the score to 2-1 due to an error of their Myanmar opponent.

The match ended 3-2 after U23 Myanmar got their second and the third goals in the 51st and 53rd minutes of the match.

With six points after two matches, U23 Myanmar officially won a ticket to the semi-finals. They will play Vietnam on May 13./.
