Lebanon were held to a shock 1-1 draw at home to Myanmar in their final Group G World and Asia Cup qualifier Tuesday that sent the Cedars tumbling out of the competition at the first hurdle.The competition's new format sees the eight group winners along with the four best second-placed sides reach the final phase of World Cup qualification as well the 2019 Asia Cup.Lebanon were sheepish from the outset, misplacing pass after pass and failing to maintain a solid shape to their formation.Lebanon dangerman Maatouk came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half, hitting the post from Mohammad Zein Tahan's accurate center on 28 minutes.
