A late goal from defender Seut Baraing lifted Phnom Penh Crown Academy to their inaugural victory on home soil in the Asia U16 Champions Trophy on Saturday.

Orn Chanpolin had put the hosts ahead on 42 minutes at the Olympic Stadium with an emphatic strike from distance, but opponents Guangdong FC hit back with an equaliser from Li Canming on the hour mark.

The Chinese team captain Li Canming was sent off for a second bookable offence and moments later, Seut Baraing snatched the winner to secure third place in Group B for the Cambodians.

Reigning champions Chonburi FC remain on top with Frenz United Malaysia in second. Crown coach Bouy Dary told the Post: “This home victory expresses the newfound unity and patience we’ve established, and these characteristics are likely to be better in the next games.”
