Carrying the nation's hopes

The Cambodia football squad and officials getting ready for the off
The players and officials of the Cambodia national football team are pictured early this morning at the departures area of Phnom Penh's international airport as they prepare to leave for their three-match AFC Challenge Cup Qualifying Group competition in Bangladesh. Team coach Prak Sovannara confirmed that the squad is fit, healthy and ready to do battle, with the only injury doubt, striker Kouch Sokumpheak, reporting fit for duty. The players had to miss out on their recent Khmer New Year celebrations as they were in a training camp in Vietnam, so their preparation has been strict and focused on qualifying for the 2010 finals to be played in India. Team Manager Tola May was also upbeat about their chances as the 18-strong squad and party of seven officials left for Dhaka. They will have a light training session this afternoon once they arrive, will train again at the national stadium in Dhaka on Saturday and then begin their competition in earnest against the host nation on Sunday evening. I know Bangladesh television are carrying the games live but doubt whether they will be viewable here in Cambodia.

Thanks for your comments.
You can also find out football information from Cambodia at this blog:

There is not enough news coverage of Cambodian football, especially the Cambodia national team, so I am doing my best to give them the coverage they deserve. In any other country, the national football team are back and front page news on a regular basis.

Due to the lack of news coming out of Bangladesh, especially no tv coverage of the games, I have asked the national coach to send me the results of the 3 matches by sms or email and I will bring that information to you as soon as I have it. We shall see what happens.

Keep reading,
Andy

To our friend from Bangladesh...Sir, You are a Gentleman and a Scholar...thank you for your gracious help and I wish your team much success, but not as much as the Cambodian team of course.
Thank you for your friendship and co-operation,
Andy
