HO CHI MINH – The Cambodian U23 national football team came from behind to win 3-2 Sunday in their second friendly game against V-League Division 1 side A Dong Nai in Ho Chi Minh City. Head coach Scott O’Donell gave the thumbs up to his players for their second success of their training tour in Vietnam. “We were playing quite well and restricted them to very few chances but conceded two very soft goals after 50 minutes,” he said. “But credit to the players. They showed a lot of character to get back into the game and scored three goals [via Nov Soseila, Kuoch Sokumpheak and Chhun Sothearath] to win the game.” The U23s will have a couple more games before they return home in time for the four-team BIDC Cup that will take place in Phnom Penh in early November.
