A lingering look

A few more photos from last night's exit from the Singapore Cup for Phnom Penh Crown. They just didn't quite have enough to match Tampines Rovers on the night, who shaded the game despite a dramatic comeback by Crown early in the 2nd half. However, they couldn't sustain the momentum and the home team's man of the moment, as he has been for many years, Bosnian-born striker Alexsandar Duric came up trumps when it mattered most - in the penalty box. He says it's his final season in Singapore and with more than 300 goals to his name, every defence in the city state's league will be glad to hear that. The meagre attendance of 487 included a group of Cambodian students studying in Singapore, as well as the Cambodian Ambassador.
