Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan drew 2-2 at Thuwana Stadium in their Asian Cup qualifier group stage on October 10.
Myanmar made few changes from its line-up in the friendly match with Thailand and fielded its strongest team.
Kyrgyzstan scored their first goal from the penalty spot eight minutes into the game, and their second goal in the 48th minute. Myanmar missed a series of chances before the interval. Aung Thu equalised after three minutes and Myanmar substituted Hlaing Bo Bo, Myo Ko Tun and Maung Maung Lwin to apply pressure on the away team.
A late equaliser from Kyaw Ko Ko in the dying minutes earned a point for Myanmar.
Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan have earned four points each in Group A, and Myanmar will struggle in the next matches to qualify for the final stage of the Asian Cup.
