Cambodia give Young Lions a scare at Games

Cambodia came close to a historic win yesterday in Jakarta as Singapore escaped with a 2-1 victory at the SEA Games. Chhin Chhoeun had given the Kingdom's U23 team a surprise lead in the 35th minute, and some inspirational keeping from Sou Yaty maintained their lead into the second half. However, an equaliser on 56 minutes and a 75th minute winner sealed Cambodia's fate in the game that was generally viewed as their best chance for a point from the dreaded Group A. Earlier at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Malaysia's Izzaq Faris Ramlan grabbed an 85th minute winner to see the reigning champions down 13-time winners Thailand 2-1. In Group B matches played at Lebak Bulus Stadium yesterday, Myanmar walloped Brunei 4-0 while Vietnam brought down highflying East Timor with a bump by winning 2-0.
