Cambodia fall to South American rivals

After an inspirational victory in their opening match, Cambodia’s 2012 Homeless World Cup team came crashing down to earth with two successive losses in Mexico City on Sunday.

“Day 2 saw a very physically strong Costa Rica totally dominate the Cambodian team to record a 9-1 win,” head coach Jimmy Campbell told the Post.

“In the afternoon’s game, Cambodia started well against Argentina but a lack of concentration and a lack of application allowed Argentina to take a clear goal advantage.

Cambodia fought back and could have won this game, but Argentina won out eventually 6-3.”

The squad now face Norway and Ireland in games at 1:50am and 5:35am Cambodian time this morning respectively.

Action can be watched live or in a highlight package on the official website.
