President's Cup kick-offs

News in from the AFC Presidents Cup Group Stage (Qualifying Round) to be held in Phnom Penh from 5-9 May. The matches, dates, kick-off times and locations have been announced on the AFC website and they make interesting reading. As the hosts, Phnom Penh Crown kick-off the competition when they take on the lowest-ranked team in Group B, Yeedzin from Bhutan on Saturday 5 May at 1.30pm at the Olympic Stadium. That will be a tough ask for both teams, kicking-off around the middle of the day. A few prayers for cloud cover that day would not go amiss. Crown's second match will be against the Nepal Police team two days later, on Monday 7 May, at the more respectable time of 4.30pm, again at Olympic Stadium. The final, and toughest match on paper, for Crown will be the meeting against two-time cup winners Dordoi from Kyrgyzstan, at Olympic at 4pm on Wednesday 9 May. At the same time, over at the Army Stadium, the other final match will be played at the same time, between Nepal and Yeedzin, to ensure fair play.

Group B matches in Phnom Penh:
Sat 5 May: PPCFC v Yeedzin - 1.30pm @ Olympic
Sat 5 May: Dordoi v Nepal - 4.30pm @ Olympic
Mon 7 May: Yeedzin v Dordoi - 1.30pm @ Olympic
Mon 7 May: Nepal v PPCFC - 4.30pm @ Olympic
Wed 9 May: PPCFC v Dordoi - 4pm @ Olympic
Wed 9 May: Nepal v Yeedzin - 4pm @ Army Stadium

With the current form, I am really afraid that PPC can't qualify for the next round. As a PPC fan, I wish you all the best. You, PPC, represent Cambodia football to the world. So do your best like what you did last year. Cheers :)
