Cambodia return home from Brunei pointless and pitiful

Despite a ninth-minute strike by Chhun Sothearath cancelling out an early opener by Malaysia, Cambodia succumbed to two late goals to lose 3-1 on Monday night in Brunei, recording their fourth straight loss at the 2012 Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy.

Cambodia’s woeful form in Bandar Seri Begawan saw them fail to collect anything but the wooden spoon from the five-team Group B, as Malaysia also exited the predominantly U21 competition in fourth place.

Meanwhile on Monday, hosts Brunei edged rival East Timor 1-0 in their crucial last group game to snatch the remaining spot in the semifinals behind table toppers Vietnam.

Brunei will face Group A winners Myanmar at 7pm Cambodian time tonight at the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium, after which Vietnam and Indonesia will square off for a place in Friday’s final.
