Cambodia battling at Homeless World Cup

Cambodia added to their opening loss at the 2014 Homeless World Cup in Santiago with two more defeats on Monday, going down 8-4 to Switzerland before being thumped 8-2 by reigning champions Brazil.

Despite the results, the Kingdom’s representatives in Chile could take heart from performing in 41-degree heat and with a thread-bare squad of four players and no subs which includes local recruit Manual Reyes, who plays as a keeper.

“To score three goals for my country is amazing,” said Cambodia’s Then Lang Eng of his hat-trick against Switzerland. “We fought so hard but they were too good.”
