Picture this

Dressing room talk by head coach David Booth before the game
A few more pictures from yesterday's AFC President's Cup qualifier as Phnom Penh Crown successfully negotiated the Group Stage for the second year running. Winning their first two group matches has already put them through to the finals, which will be played 24-30 September at a location to be announced, depending on who the six qualifiers are. Victories over Yeedzin and Nepal were warmly welcomed by the home crowd, who would also love to see Crown beat the highly-fancied Dordoi in the final match, essentially a dead rubber, at 4.30pm tomorrow at the Olympic Stadium. David Booth, the Crown coach, is also eager to put on a good show against Dordoi, though he will be without his best player this season, Emmanuel Frimpong, who still has pain in his calf muscle. He will assess the fitness of a couple more players before deciding on his final line-up.
