Your country needs you

The Crown players, LtoR, are: Thierry, Yaty, Boris, Sokumpheak, Sothy, Da, Suhana, Srin, Pheng
Kok Boris and eight of his Phnom Penh Crown teammates went straight into Cambodia national team training camp at Tonle Bati after the domestic season ended on Sunday. They may've won a hard-fought Championship but there is no time for these players to rest and relax. Boris has sent me this picture of the 9 Crown players involved in the U-21 and senior squads and also tells me that the senior team beat the U-21s 2-1 in a short practice match yesterday, Laboravy scoring both for the seniors, Soksana for the U-21s. The U-21s travel to play in Laos in Saturday in a friendly against Laos U-21s. They then come back for a practice match against local opposition before heading out to spend much of August in Brunei taking part in the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy. Cambodia will meet Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore in their group in the Brunei tournament. The U-21s from Crown are Thourng Da and Ngoy Srin, and two overage players out of five allowed, Kouch Sokumpheak and Sos Suhana. The rest of the Crown players will remain in camp with the senior team who will also be off to Laos from 12-20 October to play in the AFF Suzuki Cup qualifiers involving five countries – Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar, Timor-Leste and hosts Laos.
