I look almost human, even wearing the bib. I'm being interviewed by commentator Nguyen Khac Cuong for the 360 sports programme on VTV from Vietnam
I have more to post from the football last night, including details from the other match played, but in the meantime, here's two more shots of yours truly wearing the worst-ever bib you can imagine. Its sky blue, its about five sizes too big and I look like a complete ninny, but if I don't wear it and flash my press pass I wouldn't get past the tight security in situ on matchdays. I've been told I can keep my bib after the tournament is if I'm ever going to wear it again! The bibs were produced by the BIDC people, who have done a pretty good job on the PR side of things, as I see street signs everywhere advertising the BIDC Cup competition. The Olympic Stadium is awash with signs as well, emphasizing the spirit of the tournament: Unity, Friendship, Honesty, Fairplay. Now if only someone would tell the Lao striker Singto Lamnao to do likewise. Both photos were taken by Tep Phany, the media officer for the Cambodian football federation, who is at every game and can be found snapping away at anything that moves, hence these two pictures.
This is Phany getting all creative with his camera settings. This was taken during last night's action.

A friend of mine reported back to me that they saw me on VTV Vietnam tv and I spoke with a perfect Vietnamese accent! What I actually said was rubbish but the accent was excellent. LOL
And I must admit I really don't like the word Yuon to describe the Vietnamese. They are Vietnamese as Cambodians are Khmer.
