Laos desperately needed a win in tonight’s encoiunter to stand a chance of qualifying to the semifinals of the tournament. With an opposition as strong as Mynamar standing in front of them, they needed the home crowd to get behind them.

However, the stadium wore a deserted look and only few of the stands had spectators getting behind the home team. The rest of it was more or less empty.
