The warm-up

Cambodia skipper Sun Sovannarith (18, red) leads out the national U23 team yesterday
I'm back online, better late than never, so here are a flood of pictures from last night at the Cambodia v Thailand encounter, here in Vientiane. By the way, today hosts Laos drew with Myanmar 1-1 and Singapore lost a 2-goal lead against Indonesia to draw 2-2. These teams are in Group B. Cambodia are in the 5-team Group A and face underdogs Timor Leste tomorrow at the National Stadium (5.45pm start), expecting to put that defeat against Thailand behind them. Timor, who got stuffed 11-0 in their 1st game, played a blinder against Vietnam for nearly an hour last night before going down. It wasn't Vietnam's strongest side by any stretch but Timor battled bravely and will be a tough nut to crack tomorrow afterall.
