Proud moments

It's that proud moment when the players get to sing the national anthem whilst looking towards the national flag
Another batch of photos from yesterday's 3-1 international victory for Cambodia over the Chinese special administrative district of Macau, the former Portuguese colony that was handed over to China in 1999 but are still allowed to play as a separate international team from their Chinese rulers. Cambodia will play in Macau next Wednesday in the away leg of the AFC Challenge Cup, looking to maintain their path towards the group stages which take place later next month.

The Macau team that were very pleased they scored a goal and conceded only 3 yesterday
The referee was from Myanmar but is hidden behind the two captains

An unhappy national coach Lee Tae-Hoon reading his team the half-time riot act. They decided to remain pitchside for their half-time deliberations.
The match is underway with the open areas of the ground devoid of spectators though the main stand enjoyed a healthy audience. Match admission was $1.
