Your nation expects

The Cambodia national football team take a break from training this afternoon
This is the Cambodia national football team who will run their hearts out for their country in their AFC Challenge Cup qualifying matches in Bangladesh, starting this coming Sunday. Under the supervision of national coach Prak Sovannara, Cambodia will play Bangladesh, Macau and Myanmar in the space of six days for the right to qualify for the 2010 finals.
I caught up with Sovannara and the 18-man squad at their training headquarters at the national football center outside Phnom Penh this afternoon. As the skies darkened above and rain clouds blew across the well-grassed pitch, the coach and his staff put the players through their paces in one of their final training sessions before the squad flies out to Bangladesh in three days time. An interview with coach Sovannara and more photos from my visit will be posted here over the next few days.
In the meantime, here is the 18-man squad that will represent Cambodia in the forthcoming matches:
1. Samreth Seiha; 2 Kim Chanbunrith (capt); 3. Lak Raksmey; 4. Tieng Tiny; 5. Om Thavrak; 6 Pok Chanthan; 7. Khim Borey; 8. Keo Sokngorn; 9. Teab Vathanak; 10. Kouch Sokumpheak; 12 Khoun Laboravy; 13. San Narith; 14. Sun Sovannarith; 15. Pheak Rady; 16. Sam El Nasa; 17. Lar Pichseyla; 18 Ouk Mic; 24. Ly Ravy.
