SINGAPORE - The Lions are cruising at the National Stadium as they lead Myanmar 3-0 at half-time in the Asean Football Federation Suzuki Cup.

Bernd Stange's men took the lead in the 16th minute through left-back Shaiful Esah, whose free-kick from 25m out swerved past a sea of players before dipping past goalkeeper Thiha Si Thu's reach.

Midfielder Hariss Harun scored in the 35th minute with a superb dipping volley from outside the box and added a second goal three minutes before the break with another volley inside the box when Myanmar struggled to clear a corner.
