The girls get stuck in

4 of the best girls won prizes
Young girls playing football, or any sport for that matter, is a rarity. In my view, it should be actively encouraged but in traditional Khmer society, its frowned upon. So hats off to the young girls at Punheahok School in Boeung Keng Kang 1 who ran around like whirling dervishes on Sunday morning as part of the friendly football games during the event to introduce the One World Futbols to their school. It was great to see them having so much fun and especially the goal celebrations reaffirmed the messages of teamwork and enjoying sport.
Listening intently to the pre-match instructions

Everyone had to write their name on the board

Okay, lets get stuck in

There was lots of chasing the ball and running around in packs
