MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine Azkals banked on a late goal by OJ Porteria to beat Myanmar, 1-0, in a Fifa international friendly in Myanmar.
Porteria came through from outside the box in the 78th minute.
Myanmar had multiple chances to pull ahead early but came up empty thanks to Neil Etheridge’s stellar defensive play.
Etheridge saved a close attempt by Myanmar in the 74th minute. Myanmar blew a left-footed follow up that sailed wide.
