Winning - the hard way

All smiles as Cambodia win the 1st-ever BIDC Cup, held aloft by capt Sun Sovannarith (18)

To say Cambodia won the BIDC Cup the hard way is an understatement. In the final at Olympic Stadium tonight, Cambodia led 2-nil with Chan Chhaya netting twice, were then pulled back to 2-2 and looked to be suffering shell-shock, when Kuoch Sokumpheak joined the party and headed the winning goal just 3 minutes from the end of normal time that sent the 30,000 crowd into raptures, though they had to endure 5 minutes extra time before they could celebrate the success. More later, when I get my breath back but in the meantime, enjoy the pictures.
