YANGON (29 Jan 2014) – Kanbawza FC made a grand start to the new Myanmar football season when they beat three-times Myanmar National League (MNL) champions Yangon United 2-0 to lift the Charity Cup 2014.
The Charity Cup which serves as a preview of the new MNL season was played at the Aung San Stadium.
With both teams jostling hard for supremacy in the first half, a 0-0 score was inevitable up until the 54th minute when Junior slammed in a curling corner from Thein Than Win.
In the 68th minute, KBZ then made sure that the match was beyond the reach of Yangon when new signing Tihomir Zivkovic blasted in from close range.
The new MNL season will begin on 1 February.
