Cambodia off to winning start in AFF U16 champs

Cambodia began their quest for the 2015 AFF BIDC U16 Championships with a hard-earned 1-0 victory over the Philippines in a Group B encounter at the floodlit Olympic Stadium on Tuesday, with the goal coming in the 55th minute off a Teat Himneng strike that wiped out the lingering disappointment of two goals disallowed for offside within the first 10 minutes of the game.

After yesterday’s rest day, Cambodia will take on Australia at the same venue today in another twilight clash.

In Tuesday’s first match, Myanmar proved too strong for Singapore in a 3-1 win.

Htet Aung blasted the first goal for Myanmar early in the game.

Singapore drew level in the 34th minute through a Jordan Vestering free kick.

Myanmar, however, took control of the game with goals from Naing Tun and Phyoe Wai.
