Having recorded wins in their three previous qualifiers, Park Sung-hwa's men entered the game at the Thuwanna Stadium knowing even defeat might be enough to see them through.

As a result of finishing top, Myanmar will now face off against the likes of Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines next month.
The 0-0 draw was also enough to see the Laotians progress, after third-placed Timor Leste fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brunei, even though a stalemate would have been enough to see them move second.
As runners-up in qualification, Laos will be in Group B, taking on the Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
