Some changes can be seen today in the starting list, and goalkeeper Phone Thitsar Min and Thar Yar Win Htet featured in the starting XI for the first time. Yan Kyaw Htwe scored the first opening goal against ISPE in 4 minutes, driving into the net after the ball bounced back from the keeper’s save Thar Yar Win Htet’s attempt. The second leading followed in 9 minutes, and the youngster Thar Yar Win Htet hit the net from the delivery of David Htan. Again, the lads were in the mood to score, and Yan Kyaw Htwe added his second goal from the paving of Thar Yar Win Htet, Yan Naing Oo, and David Htan. However, the lads allowed a goal to the visitors in 39 minutes due to a misunderstanding between Phone Thitsar Min and Thurein Soe. In the additional time, the Lions got a free kick, and unfortunately, their cross hit the bar and broke the first half 3-1 ahead of ISPE.
The visitor tried to pull back a goal in the second half and geared up their attack in the second half. Even so, Phone Thitsar Min denied their attempt. Then the coach made changes with La Min Htwe and Yan Kyaw Soe in the place of David Htan and Hlaing Bo Bo in 62 minutes. The lads kept pushing to add a goal, and in 78 minutes, some changes were made in the place of Thurein Soe and Yan Kyaw Htwe with Zaw Ye Tun and Sa Aung Pyae Ko. Then substitute Zaw Ye Tun finished the victory with his goal when Yan Kyaw Soe placed a shot to the goal area, and he finished with his heading to the net to seal a 4-1 victory over ISPE.
Yangon United Head Coach Gerd Zeise said, “That’s good to score in the early minutes. Then in 20 minutes, 3-0 ahead. What we played until this time and later too, was brilliant football. I must say it’s brilliant football. You can’t find it very often, but we did it today, and it was brilliant.”
