Honda reward

The U23 players line up in formation
One of the rewards for the Cambodian Under-23 team and their coaching staff, for winning the inaugural BIDC Cup at the weekend, in addition to the $20,000 prize money, was the gift of 31 matching Honda Dream motorbikes (and helmets), courtesy of the Cambodian Football Federation. After the hullabaloo of the previous night, the U23 players gathered on Sunday afternoon at the scene of their triumph, the Olympic Stadium, to receive their gifts from the FFC president, HE Sao Sokha. I didn't get a call to join the party, so these pictures are courtesy of Tep Phany of the FFC. The U23 squad are now in Vietnam, returning to the Thanh Long facility just outside Saigon, where they will have another ten days of intensive training in final preparation before they depart for Vientiane and the SEA Games in Laos. They have one game scheduled, meeting Can Tho on the 25th, the day before they return to Phnom Penh.

Hi Andy, we've heard say the PPP gave you a Honda too, is that correct? - ABCB Readers

I wish. But definitely not, their budget doesn't go that high and I was only watching, not playing, so don't deserve anything of that nature.
The players are the ones who bust a gut to win that tournament and deserve all the praise.
