Friends with Fabio

Fabio takes his turn in goal at the Friends HQ
Did you think you'd escaped from the Fabio Cannavaro roadshow? Well, think again. His last official function during his brief stay in Phnom Penh, coming after he'd spent time coaching the Phnom Penh Crown Academy youngsters, was to visit the Friends NGO in the center of town, and to donate balls and playing kits to the disadvantaged kids there. Fabio got to find out about the great work that the organization Mith Samlanh do to give street kids alternative opportunities in life. He was accompanied by Rithy Samnang, the man responsible for bringing Fabio to Cambodia. Fabio's name has also been linked with a new high profile football league due to begin in India next month. Lots of money is being poured into the project and famous footballers like Fabio, Hernan Crespo, Robert Pires and others, have been booked to add their weight behind the new league.
Thumbs up for Fabio and his new friends
