The two French-Khmer players, Thierry and Boris, were given a good run out with the latter looking assured in midfield, whilst Thierry was starved of sufficient ball but showed battling qualities to get into the game. Two trialists, Res Ravy and Mat Sopri, were also given twenty minutes or so. The only squad member not on show was Kouch Sokumpheak, who continues his rehabilitation from his knee ligament injury. After the match, the Crown squad then joined the Academy boys and the Cambodia U-15 Girls national team, in Phnom Penh preparing for their upcoming visit to Singapore, in a series of fun five-a-side games.
