Cambodia slump out of Homeless World Cup

Team Cambodia’s Homeless World Cup campaign in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro ended with a 11-3 loss to Greece in the second tier on Saturday. South America stamped its authority on the tournament by monopolising both the men’s and women’s finals. Hosts Brazil are on course for a golden double with both the men’s and women’s teams making the final. Brazilian men got the better of Mexico 5-2 to set up a finals clash with Chile, who edged out Portugal 5-4. In the third place playoff between beaten semifinalists, Mexico scrambled home against Portugal in penalties after the sides were level 4-4 in regulation time. In the 12-nation Women’s Cup, staged for the first time, Brazil earned the right to meet Mexico in the final. Over the weekend, Team Cambodia - backed by local NGO Happy Football Cambodia Australia - pulled off a 9-4 win over Canada after losing a tight finish to India 5-3.
