National coach Bouy Dary had this to say on releasing the names of his final squad selection. "We started the selection process in mid-March with over 100 boys and in two weeks we reduced that to thirty boys. We have trained twice a week, Thursday and Friday, with a game every Sunday since then. They've worked really hard and have tried hard to do what I've asked of them. They have all improved a lot. We played two games against the older boys at Preah Khan Reach and they did everything I asked them to do, though because our boys are smaller we had problems in the attacking and defensive third. I now know what to do against bigger teams. We expect teams from Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore will be bigger and I think Japan and Korea will be well developed.
We plan to take them into training camp on 22 May at Cheng Meng, so we'll train every day and have a match or two before we leave for Malaysia. I want them to play good football, attacking football, good passing and be well organized. We are small but we are quick, so we'll try to play short passes and move, rather than concentrate on possession football. I have my view on how I want the game to be played and we will do our best to represent Cambodia in the right way. As the coach, I want to win and to win we must play good football, as a team. That is our aim."
