Brief: U23s taste victory again

HO CHI MINH CITY – Cambodia’s U23 national team, spending a month at a training camp in Vietnam in preparation for the four-team tournament in Phnom Penh in early November and the Southeast Asian Games in Laos in December, tasted success Thursday in their first arranged friendly against local opposition. A goal by full-back Pheak Rady on 35 minutes proved decisive in a 1-0 victory over recently relegated Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), pleasing national coach Scott O’Donell. “I was quite happy with the performance of the team, particularly in the first half,” O’Donell said. “The only real chances HCMC had were a result of our sloppiness. The boys were disciplined and worked very hard. Still a long way to go, but considering I have been working them hard in training, the performance [Thursday] was encouraging. I made eight changes throughout the second half, which obviously disrupted things a bit, but overall I was quite happy.”
