Cambodia look to seal AFC Cup qualification

Cambodia are set to play the second leg of their 2012 AFC Challenge Cup qualifier at the Estádio Campo Desportivo stadium tonight. Led by South Korean coach Lee Tae Hoon, the team carry a 3-1 advantage into the fixture against the former Portuguese colony which kicks off at 6pm Cambodian time. The 16,000-seater stadium, also know as the Macau Olympic Complex and situated on the island of Taipa, has previously hosted high profile friendlies featuring the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea. Leung Sui Wing, Macau head coach and former skipper of Hong Kong national team, has promised to bolster his offence after seeing an overly defensive performance in the first leg last week. “We will try our best to win at least 2-0 at home,” he said during the post match press conference at Olympic Stadium. However, Cambodia coach Lee believes his side have enough to advance from the tie – which would see them join the Maldives, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan in group C – and has made little in the way of changes. Srey Veasna, who currently plays for Thai third tier club Loei City, is the only player from the first leg to miss out on the Macau trip, while the midfield trio of Khim Borey, now with Thai Premier League team Sisaket FC, Phuong Soksana of National Defence Ministry and Suon Vesna of Preah Khan Reach have been called up.
