Crown boys edged 1-0 by Mandalay visitors

Phnom Penh Crown Academy were stunned 1-0 at home on Saturday by visiting side Mandalay Academy in their Asia U16 Champions Trophy clash.

Despite wave after wave of attacks from the hosts at the Olympic Stadium, Crown simply couldn’t break through a resolute Myanmar outfit, who held on to their goal by Moe Min Zaw.

It was a second half not without its incidents, with Malaysian referee Zwe Thet Paing brandishing five yellow cards to players on both sides in the space of 20 minutes.

Mandalay coach Rudi Minkovski told the Post: “We’ve prepared for three months for these games. Despite not letting the host get a draw, I think our defensive line needs to be strengthened.

Crown coach Bouy Dary, meanwhile, noted the team’s attention would quickly shift to next weekend’s opponent and Group B leaders Frenz United Malaysia.
