U23s win again

Yes I know I'm late with the football news, but I have an excuse...I'm in northeast Thailand.
The Cambodian U23s had their 2nd friendly game against a Vietnamese club side in a bid to add match sharpness to the daily training regime they are undertaking at their training camp in Saigon, Vietnam this month. With a win over Ho Chi Minh City already, they notched up a 2nd success, beating V-League Division 1 side Dong Nai 3-2 on Sunday. National coach Scott O'Donell gave the thumbs up to his players for coming from behind the win the game. "We were playing quite well and restricted them to very few chances, but conceded two very soft goals after 50 minutes. But credit to the players, they showed a lot of character to get back into the game and scored three goals - [via Nov Soseila, Kuoch Sokumpheak and Chhun Sothearath] - to win the game." The U23s will have a couple more practice games before they return home in time for the 4-team BIDC Cup that will take place in Phnom Penh in early November, though the real focus is on the SEA Games in Laos at the beginning of December.
