Hail the heroes
Hail the heroes of Phnom Penh Crown, who literally tore the heart out of last year's AFC President's Cup winners Yadanarbon in the 1st half of tonight's game, leading 3-nil, finally emerging 4-0 winners and securing their place in Sunday's cup final. Kingsley Njoku with two goals, Kouch Sokumpheak and Sun Sopanha scored the goals but it was the whole team who deserve the kudos for an outstanding performance that will rank as one of the most remarkable successes in the club's history. Crown now move onto the competition final, on Sunday 25th at 6pm Cambodian-time, and will know their opponents after the final group matches on Friday. They have already made history by getting to the final, but as coach David Booth said at his after-match press conference; "Now we've got to win it." Match report later.
