Cambodians toil again in Chilean hot pot

The Cambodian team were battling fatigue in the sweltering conditions of Santiago, Chile, on Tuesday as they fell to their fourth straight defeat – 6-2 against Namibia – in the preliminary round of the 2014 Homeless World Cup.

The Kingdom’s Then Lang Eng notched his ninth goal of the campaign, while team-mate Khoun Bora also found the net to put the scores at 2-2. However, a disallowed goal from a freekick by Lang Eng signified the beginning of the end for Cambodia, as their African rivals maintained their energy levels better.

“We tried our best and will keep fighting for our first win,” Lang Eng told the Post after the game. Cambodia have been bracketed in Group F of the secondary stage, which includes England, Sweden, South Korea and Denmark.
