Ryutaro Megumi had a simple chance to finish, with a majority of the net wide open in front of him, but the Japanese player’s shot rocketed off the far post and back into the field of play, after which Mehmedovic came in sliding into the box to swoop the ball from the legs of two defenders, also pushing it back into the net in the process.

Earlier in the first half, Sekou Sylla’s goal had given Yangon an early advantage, before Khairul Amri equalised in the 55th minute for the Tampines.
