Eight players from Phnom Penh Crown will be in the mix to play against the visiting Japan Football League team at Olympic Stadium in tomorrow's friendly match, kick off at 4pm. The JFL, from the country's fourth tier of football which hosts their best amateur clubs, have already beaten the Laos U-23s and met Myanmar U-23s, and arrive in Phnom Penh for a match against the senior Cambodia team, who are in training camp for their AFF Suzuki Cup qualifying games in mid-October. The 8 players include Bin Thierry, who returned to the squad earlier this week after his knee injury cleared up sufficiently for him to resume training. The others are Sou Yaty, Ngoy Srin, Hong Pheng, Kouch Sokumpheak, Ouk Sothy, Kok Boris and Sos Suhana.

This morning saw Khim Borey and general secretary Ly Heang represented Phnom Penh Crown at the press launch in Hanoi, of the Toyota Mekong Club Championship competition. A well-attended press conference took place with Borey rubbing shoulders with Becamex Binh Duong striker, Nguyen Anh Duc, a regular in the Vietnam national team and with Becamex for many seasons. Crown will meet Becamex in the semi final at the Vietnam champions home ground on 31 October. The other semi-final is between HAGL Attapeu (Laos) and Ayeyawady United (Myanmar); with the final due on 2 November. Substantial prize money of $75,000 goes to the winning team.
