Cup memories

Crown's open-air changing room at the Army Stadium, where facilities leave a lot to be desired
Additional views from yesterday's 2nd cup success in 48 hours for Phnom Penh Crown. This time, a 1-0 win over Boeung Ket sent Crown through to the semi-finals of the Hun Sen Cup, where they will meet the Army on 8 Feb. Head coach Sam Schweingruber had this to say at the final whistle. "The whole team worked extremely hard today, we were well disciplined and we never, for the whole game, looked like we'd concede, restricting them to just a couple of chances... If we keep a clean sheet, hit them on the break, we are a very dangerous team. We have to aim for the title now, there are 4 teams left and we've beaten two of the strongest teams. I said at the team talk today, after beating the holders, our goal should be to win it; two more games, of course things have to go your way, get a bit of luck and obviously work hard, and the game versus Army will not be easy, but definitely a good chance to go on."
