Phnom Penh Crown's first C-League game of the new season yesterday at the Olympic Stadium, in pictures. It was a baking hot afternoon and a 2pm kick-off is not conducive to fast, open football as everyone knows. Neither is a Wednesday afternoon the best time to attract the crowds, so the game kicked-off with just a few hundred spectators in the grandstand, sitting in the shade. A cool evening start, under floodlights, would be far more suitable for all concerned, especially the players who are subjected to temperatures that would fry an egg. The referee Thong Chankethya, not one of my favourites, kept a fairly low profile, only booking four players (1 from Crown and Khuon Laboravy for simulation) and steered clear of the controversial decisions he usually manages to insert into games he officiates in.
