Football funnies

A different style of team photo for the Preah Khan Reach football team
I've been in Cambodia for over a year now and I still haven't managed to watch a game in the Cambodian Premier League - that's football (soccer) to the uninitiated. I've seen the Cambodian national team play a few times but haven't yet got along to the Olympic Stadium to watch a top league game. However, I caught up with Chamroeun's blog that made me smile. He has a series of recent team photos of the top five teams in the Premier League, which Phnom Penh Empire already lead by a country mile, that are unusual to say the least. Hence I've posted a couple here just for our amusement. Photos are by Tep Phany.
League leaders Phnom Penh Empire, ready for the off
I have a few more chances to watch the national team next month, when they host the AFF Suzuki Cup 2008 Qualifying Tournament. Two teams will progress through to December's finals to be played in Thailand and Indonesia and Cambodia's matches will be against Laos (17th October), East Timor (19th), Philippines (23rd) and Brunei (25th). See you there.
