Get it right
Cambodian national team players entered the pitch on Sunday for their friendly match against Ulsan University, that two of the players shirts were telling porky-pies. The shirts claimed that numbers 23 and 19 belonged to Nuth Sinoun and Sin Dalin, whereas both players are not even in the current national team squad. In fact, 23 was worn by Prak Mony Udom and 19 by the evergreen Sam El Nasa. I know that in the overall scheme of things it means diddly-squat, but we are talking about the team that represents the country and surely there are even basics that they have to get right. Or not, as the case may be. If you can't get it right, don't even both with the names. I must admit that the day before, Phnom Penh Crown played a practice match and they didn't have either names or numbers on the back of their jerseys. Luckily I know who the players are.
