Crown blast into President’s Cup final after four-star rout

Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown stormed into the final of the 2011 AFC President’s Cup after thrashing holders Yadanarbon of Myanmar 4-0 in their group match yesterday at the Kaohsiung National Stadium in Taiwan. Nigerian hitman Kingsley Njoku gave his side the lead for the second successive game after just three minutes, and team-mate Kouch Sokumpheak pushed them further in front with a fine individual goal on 22 minutes. Some expert keeping by Peng Bunchhay allowed Crown to maintain their advantage, and Sun Sopanha made it 3-0 on 32 minutes with a 20-yard free kick. Yadanarbon hit back hard but couldn’t unlock the Crown defence as Njoku put the game to bed with a 83rd minute strike. Crown, who become the first Cambodian club to grace a regional cup competition final, will face the winner of Group A in Sunday’s title decider.
