Team photo

These are the players and coaches who will give their all in the red shirts (or blue) of Cambodia on Friday 5th December versus the cup favourites and holders Singapore, against co-hosts Indonesia on Sunday 7th and in their final AFF Suzuki Cup Group A match against Myanmar on Tuesday 9th, all of the matches being played in an 80,000 seat stadium in Jakarta. To get a win or draw against any of these teams will be an excellent achievement based on Cambodia's poor record in international competition. All three of them are ranked higher than Cambodia, who are currently at 174 in the FIFA World rankings, with Indonesia at 132, Singapore 126 and Myanmar 158. With so little preparation time, it will be a tough ask for Cambodia to achieve success, though the spirit and comraderie in the training camp was very evident on my visit on Monday morning and the team told me they will be doing their very best for their country. Come on Cambodia!

Wow, Cambodia Daily sparked into life this morning (Tuesday) with an article about the forthcoming Suzuki Cup games. It included some quotes from FFC Sec-Gen Ouk Sethycheat and coach Prak Sovannara.

The article confirmed that the Cambodia v Singapore game on Friday night would be broadcast live on STAR SPORTS beginning at 6pm.

Make sure you are watching!

Hi Andy
Do you idealize Khmer young women? How's sex in Cambo?
Cheers, Amanda

Amanda, I think you have crossed wires, this was a post about the Cambodia football team!
As for young Khmer women and sex in Cambodia - that's a private matter between consenting individuals. I have no comment to make.

What wire would you consent me to channel the next question? Kisses, from Amanda

Amanda, you can ask any question you like, but you may not get the answer you seek. Whilst much of my life here in PPenh is an open book as I want to share my experiences in this amazing country, some of it will remain a closed private chapter only accessible by a chosen few.

Sorry to disagree, Andy, but I think Amanda is asking you a legitimate question. It has nothing to do with your sense of privacy or discretion. How about sex in Cambodia? --- Giselle

Giselle, I suggest you come and find out for yourself. A gentleman never talks of these things.
