|The PPCFC U-12s before heading to South Korea today|
Later on this evening an U-12 team, made up of Phnom Penh Crown community boys and one Academy youngster, Mit Samel, are off to South Korea for a youth festival. Twelve youngsters will be playing thirty minute, 9-a-side games. It's taking place in Incheon, Korea's third largest city and is the second year running that we've sent a team to represent Cambodia. Obviously for boys of this age its a great experience especially as they are camping in tents with over 1,000 other boys. The team is being supervised by former Mighty Girl, Bi Phally. Squad: Hvarit, Sochea, Phanny, Rathana, Chanbut, Vanna, Brathna, Channy, Mesa, Darapich, Samel, Hangdavit.
Today also saw the draw for the AFF Suzuki Cup 2014, with the Cambodia senior national team included in the Qualifying Round to be held in Laos before the competition finals. They will play the following qualifying matches with the best two teams progressing to the November finals in Vietnam and Singapore: 12 Oct vs Laos; 16 Oct vs Timor-Leste; 18 Oct vs Myanmar; 20 Oct vs Brunei. The final squad will be selected in September.
