And finally...

The Crown players watch the first match of the competition from the grandstand
And there's more. Another batch of photographs from yesterday's first round of matches at the Olympic Stadium in the AFC President's Cup. As well as the match action on the pitch - which was looking the best I've ever seen it - there was a live concert between the two games and then again after the final whistle. The stage action featured the excellent youth band Cartoon Emo and the country's favourite rapper Pou Khlaing, as well as some dancers and other performers. The Phnom Penh Crown victory was broadcast live across the country by the TVK and Bayon 1 television channels, as will their remaining two games on Monday and Wednesday.
