Weekend action

The weekend is nearly upon us, though there's a vital World Cup match in the early hours involving England and some no-hopers from north Africa. I'll be in the Gym bar tonight shouting myself hoarse as per usual. And standing for the national anthem, obviously. Doesn't everyone. Tomorrow will be a different kettle of fish when the Metfone C-League takes center stage at Olympic Stadium. Prek Pra face Wat Phnom in a relegation battle, whilst the Army will find it tough against Kirivong, who they beat 4-0 at the start of the season but fortunes are swinging in reverse for the two teams lately. If Kirivong's new Vietnamese import Tran Cong Danh continues where he left off in his first game, we should be in for some fireworks. He ran rings around BBU and could do the same against the Army, who have their own pocket dynamos in Suong Virak and Nov Soseila. On Sunday, Preah Khan face a rejuvenated Khemara whilst Phnom Penh Crown return to action against the C-League's own no-hopers, Chhma Khmao. League leaders Naga and 2nd placed BBU take a break after their midweek boring score draw.

It turns out that the no-hopers actually came from England and not north Africa. What another embarrassing result for Capello's failures. England's finest are made to look 2nd rate and to send me into a darkened room for the rest of the day.
