MRYUIFTBIDC Cup (aka BIDC Cup) takes place at 4pm this afternoon at the Olympic Stadium between Myanmar and Thailand. The sad point is that Cambodia will be unable to repeat their 2009 success as they failed at the semi-final stage against Thailand on Friday. It wasn't that Thailand gave them a good hiding, far from it, but Cambodia just lacked that inventive spark, that passionate belief that they could overcome their neighbours and with a coach who stuck rigidly to his gameplan even when it was obvious to all that it was failing miserably. The point of the exercise of course, was to get some serious match practice before the upcoming SEA Games in Indonesia. So in that respect, it's been worthwhile but we must also remember that Cambodia entered essentially their SEA Games team into this competition, whilst Thailand, and for that matter, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, played their U-19 teams, who will not be playing at the SEA Games. To state the obvious, Cambodia will find it considerably tougher when they get to Indonesia. I fear the worst unless the coach can pull rabbits out of the hat and find a winning formula which he clearly couldn't do in this competition.
