Cambodia dismantle Laos team

Cambodia's national team produced a slew of goals against hapless Lao Champa in a 21-0 blow out that saw Prak Mony Odom snatch eight goals in the Yunan-ASEAN International tournament at the Mangshi Stadium in China’s Yunan province.

This was Cambodia’s second win in the group following Friday’s 3-1 triumph over Chinese third-tier Club Baotou Nanjiao. Prak Mony Odom bagged all the three goals.

Two clubs from China, one each from Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia along with national teams from Bangladesh, Cambodia and Sri Lanka are taking part in this tournament which carries a winner’s prize money of $12,000 with the runners-up getting $ 8,000.

The third placed team will be richer by $6,000 while the team finishing fourth will take home $3,000.

Cambodia will face a Vietnamese club team today and China’s Yunan on Tuesday.
