Cambodia struggle at Homeless World Cup

Team Cambodia suffered two setbacks in the 2010 Homeless World Cup in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro Wednesday, going down 8-2 to Namibia and 7-4 to Croatia in secondary stage group matches. Hosts Brazil, meanwhile, took firm control of the elite group with stunning 3-1 and 8-2 victories over past winners Ukraine and prolific scoring Ghana respectively. Chile produced the day's biggest win with a 14-1 thumping of Luxembourg, while Poland pulled off a slender 5-4 win over Russia in a fiercely contested game. Ireland's 8-4 victory over Italy was one of the highlights of the tournament’s fourth day of action.
