The last word

The two coaches chat before the game. LtoR Steve Darby (Thai) and Scott O'Donell (Cam)
The last batch of photos from yesterday's opening SEA Games match for Cambodia, a 4-nil defeat to Thailand. We will put it right against Timor Leste tomorrow. I bumped into Steve Darby and the Thai team in Vientiane this morning. Steve reiterated how well he thought Cambodia played, how organized they were and how they could've netted a couple before his team got off the mark, with the all-important early goal. He also felt, and hoped, Cambodia will surprise one of the other two teams in Group A who are fancied to progress. He also told me a couple of football stories from this part of the world that would make your hair curl, but I'm sworn to secrecy.
