Cambodia drawn in Group E of U16 tourney

Cambodia will face Japan, Vietnam, Chinese Taipei, Laos and South Korea in Group E of the 2012 AFC U16 Championship qualifiers, with dates of fixtures yet to be announced. Yesterday at the AFC headquarters in Kulala Lumpur, forty teams were divided into two zones and separated in seven groups of six or five teams each. Each group will play a one-round league at a centralised venue with the top two teams advancing to next year’s finals. North Korea are the reigning U16 champions of Asia, but were beaten 2-1 by Cambodia in a friendly in February. Cambodia are ranked 41st out of 45 ranked Asian nations.  DAN RILEY
