Cambodia U23 edged by South Korea in Vietnam

The Cambodia U23 Football National team were edged 1-0 by South Korean U22s in an international friendly match at Thong Nhat Stadium, Ho Chi Minh City, yesterday afternoon.

The U23 of Cambodia who are on tour in their neighbour country to prepare for the 2015 28th SEA Games in Singapore in June played well in the first half and held a 0-0 draw, but a goal in the 51st minute by South Korea side destroyed the hopes of finishing with a goalless draw for the Cambodia side.

After the warm-up game, the Cambodian football team have to play another friendly game tomorrow with a club from the V League of Vietnam before flying back home.

The Football Federation of Cambodia also set a friendly game at the end of this month at Olympic Stadium for the SEA Games squad before they fly to Singapore on May 30 to play their group games.

In the 2015 Southeast Asian Games, the Cambodia U23 were drawn in group A alongside hosts Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines and they are set to play their first game on June 3 when they meet the Philippines.
