Way too hot for football

Meas Channa's inswinging goal direct from a corner gave Naga a share of the points
Preah Khan Reach remain top of the CPL pile, despite a 2-2 draw with Naga
Points were shared as Cambodia Premier League leaders Preah Khan Reach drew 2-2 with 3rd-placed Naga Corp, though both teams felt aggrieved with two second-half goals. Olisa Emeka Onyemerea netted twice for PKR, his second was a tap-in on the line, looking offside to everyone in the Olympic Stadium except the linesman. For Naga, Om Thavrak scored with a bullet header to make it 1-1 at the interval, and on 70 minutes, Meas Channa's corner went straight in to make it all square. Initially the linesman waved his flag but after being surrounded and hounded by Naga players, changed his mind and put his flag down. Honours even. In the second game of a scorching afternoon, Kirivong looked unimpressive in beating bottom club Phuchung Neak, who made a good fist of it. In fact Pov Samnang gave them the lead only for Kirivong's Juliuos Chukwumeka to score both sides of the interval to give his side a 2-1 success. My peanut fantasy seller was there again, but I'm under doctor's orders to resist nuts. It's like holding a glass of cold water in front of a man dying of thirst.
Naga Corp shaded the 1st half but had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Preah Khan Reach

Spare a thought for bottom club Phuchung Neak, with just 1 point from 7 games
Two of the younger spectators - I think she's being friendly!
