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.
