7 February 2013
Burma’s national football team lost at home to the Philippines on Wednesday, after a 77th-minute winner by the Filipinos secured their victory, GMA Network reports. The Burmese looked the better side for most of the game, until OJ Porteria struck from distance and the ball swerved away from the Burmese keeper, giving the Philippines the winning edge in the friendly match. The game was part of the teams’ preparation for the 2014 Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup qualifiers, which will start in March.
