B-team hit five
The squad members at Phnom Penh Crown, who've been kicking their heels on the substitutes bench in recent weeks, got an opportunity for some game time this afternoon when Crown, effectively fielding a B-team, beat Asia Euro University 5-2 at the club's Tuol Kork training headquarters. The goals came from Hong Pheng, Hong Ratana and Takahito Ota in the first half with Hong Pheng (pictured) with his second and Chim Rathanak completing the scoring for Crown. The starting line-up was: Visokra, Dara, Vanthan, Sochivorn, Sovan, Ratana, Sophat, Ota, Virak, S Pheng, H Pheng. The playing substitutes were Bunna, Obadin, Sovannrithy, Narith, Sophanal, Rathanak, Njoku, Chaya. Crown will play another friendly match this coming Wednesday, the day after the national team meet the Malaysian Olympic team, when the Cambodian U-19 team will be their opponents at a venue yet to be decided.
