Army down the Sharks

The midweek, and very wet, Metfone C-League encounter between the Army and Chhlam Samuth this afternoon was very one-sided. And it wasn't Chhlam Samuth who came out on top. The Army led through Phuong Soksana at half-time and then rattled in another four goals after the break, all in the last 20 minutes, through Chin Chhoeurn (2), Meak Chhordaravuth and Khek Khemarin. Sunday Ayodele had actually given the relegation-threatened Sea Sharks the lead early on as they flattered to deceive, before losing 4-1. It looks like a fight to the death between the Sharks and Prek Pra Keila for that second relegation spot over the last few weeks of the season - two points currently separate the two teams with Chhlam Samuth's nose in front. The Army meanwhile move briefly into third place in the table.

4 August:
The Cambodia Daily, in response to the Daily Telegraph story, published a story in their paper today. May Tola added that a 5-man committee reviewed footage from the 2 games. "We watched the tape...and we did not find any proof, any evidence, or suspicion," he said. "They [the national team] played 100%."
"We are worried about the [Cambodian] team's reputation. Sometimes, in football, we cannot avoid this," said May Tola.

The Phnom Penh Post remained silent on the issue.
