Back in the fold
It's all quiet on the blog at the moment as I'm in the Mekong Delta on a working holiday. The Cambodian national team were due back on home soil on the 8th after their training camp in Vietnam, and a handful of games against local teams, as a warm-up for the forthcoming AFF Suzuki Cup matches in Laos. They should resume squad training again very soon before they head up to Laos again, in a return to their old stomping ground, where the Under-23s appeared in the SEA Games at the back end of last year (and at least 7 of the U23s were involved in their recent friendlies in Saigon). I don't have the full details of the friendlies that the squad played whilst they were in Vietnam, the information coming out of the FFC is as bare as it ever was, though I have to agree that the results are immaterial, its the preparation for the Suzuki Cup that is all important, for the squad to gel together and for them to be playing the way the new coach expects. It would be good to get a friendly match on home soil under their belts before they head to Laos but I won't hold my breath.
