Leeds United began their controversial postseason tour of Myanmar with a 2-1 defeat to a National League All-Stars side.

United's plans for the trip were met by a storm of protest when announced at the end of last month.

The UK's shadow sports minister Rosena Allin-Khan and large numbers of Leeds fans urged the club to cancel the trip amid concerns over Myanmar's human rights record, while Amnesty International were highly critical.

But Championship side Leeds pressed ahead with the tour and arrived in Myanmar on Tuesday with a young squad.

A penalty from playmaker Samuel Saiz cancelled out Joseph Mpande's 22nd-minute opener before Christopher Chizoba netted a second-half winner for the hosts.

Paul Heckingbottom's team face the Myanmar national side on Friday in their final match.
