KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 29 (Bernama) -- Indonesia consoled themselves for missing the final by beating Myanmar 3-1 to claim the bronze at the Selayang Stadium, near here today.

The result equalled the bronze medal won by Indonesia in three previous editions - 1981 in Manila, 1989 (Kuala Lumpur) and 1999 in Brunei.

In the match today, Myanmar started on an aggressive note and took the lead in the 21st minute through striker Than Paing but Indonesia clawed their way into the match through Evan Dimas Darmono's 56th minute equaliser.

That goal served as an added inspiration for the Indonesians who took the lead just two minutes later through Septian David Maulana while substitute Muhamad Rezaldi Hehanusa sealed the victory in the 76th minute.
