HA NOI – Viet Nam, the defending SEA Games champions, lost 1-2 to Myanmar yesterday in the semi-finals of the Southeast Asian Women's Football Championship in Laos.

Viet Nam failed to capitalise on a number of early chances but in the 43rd minute, Le Thi Thuong managed to find the back of the net.

Myanmar equalised 15 minutes later thanks to Than Htwe.

And just before the close of play, Myanmar were awarded a penalty and Naw Arlo War Phaw made it 2-1.

Viet Nam had their chances but Nguyen Thi Muon and Chuong Thi Kieu both missed their penalty attempts.

Muon's attempt was punched away by goalkeeper May Khin Ya Min. But referee Abirami Apbai Naidu of Singapore ordered the kick re-taken. Kieu took over but her shot was superbly saved by the keeper.

The win means Myanmar make it into the final for the first time. They will face Thailand, who defeated host Laos 4-0 in the second semi-final later yesterday.
