The U-13s line-up before their game with Thailand
Twelve young boys and their female coach Bi Phally went to Incheon in South Korea recently to represent their country and Phnom Penh Crown. They are all members of the Crown community teams except Academy student and captain, Mit Samel. The Ministry of Education, Youth & Sport and the Football Federation asked Crown to supply the team for the second year running. Sixteen countries took part in the Asian Youth Festival, with 62 teams at three age-levels. The boys from Cambodia were in the U-13 category and played four matches. Their first day was a mixed bag, losing their
opening game 2-0 to Thailand but winning their second tie, 4-0 against Korean team, FC Jwasuyoung. The following day they played their final two matches and
recorded a 1-1 draw with Eobang School and then a 3-2
victory over JSD FC, both opponents from
Korea. So that's 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat out of their 4 matches and
lots of fun for all the boys. They represented their country and their
club extremely well, so a big well done to them and their coach Phally.
