Women's Asian Cup: Vietnam, Myanmar settle for draw
Vietnam came from behind twice to salvage a point and finish third but will have to wait till the Group B matches conclude later on Thursday to know their knockout stage fate, with the two best third-placed teams to join the respective group winners and runners-up in the quarter-finals. Myanmar, needing a win to finish above their Southeast Asian rivals, started as the more aggressive of the two sides and had a first look on goal in the second minute after Tun Win Theingi's threaded pass found Thaw Thaw, whose shot failed to trouble Vietnam custodian Tran Thi Kim Thanh.
That set the stage for a well balanced game as both teams created opportunities with Nwe denying Vietnam's Huynh Nhu in the 13th, while Tun's header from inside the box was cleared away two minutes later.
Myanmar, however, edged ahead again in spectacular fashion in the 49th minute when Tun set up Tun Khin Marlar, who found space before smashing her effort into the back of the net.
Huynh Nhu made no mistake from the penalty spot, sending Nwe the wrong way to level the tie for a second time as both teams had to settle for a share of the points.
