Final group games

There's more football at the Olympic Stadium today as the final group games of the BIDC Cup are played and Cambodia will find out who they will meet in Saturday's Final. It's important as the winning team gets to share $20,000, which is pretty big prize money. The game at 3.30pm today will be a very interesting encounter between HAGL and the Laos U23 team. It will likely be a close game as both teams have shown enough to suggest they have sufficient quality in their ranks to cause the other team trouble. I think the Brazilian strikeforce for HAGL will give the Laos youngsters a few headaches, probably having to listen to Toledo moaning, whining and falling over all the time. In the 6pm kick-off, Cambodia's U23s will face Vissai Ninh Binh, who looked completely out of sorts in their last match against HAGL. I expect them to play better today, on pain of death. As Cambodia are already through to the final, expect a raft of changes from coach Scott O'Donell, who intends to give his squad members the opportunity to shine, especially after he expressed his acute disappointment in the 2nd half showing of his team against Laos. Plus a few players were showing signs of knocks and strains after the game on Tuesday, so they could do with some R&R.

Unfortunately that means they missed all of the goals!
