Cambodia lose 2-1 in final tune-up before Cup

The Cambodian national team threw away an early lead to lose 2-1 to the U21 Malaysia side at the FAM Field in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday night.

This was the concluding action of their two-week overseas training camp.

The friendly had originally been set for Malaysia’s senior team, but was rearranged to feature the U23 team before finally being played with the U21s.

The Cambodian squad flew out to Yangon yesterday morning ahead of their opening tie in the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup qualifiers tomorrow against East Timor.

Recent attempts to contact the team and coach Hok Sochetra have failed.
