Futsal teams vie in round of 16

Khmer Heart FC quite literally played their hearts out to scramble home 6-5 against Young Star to grab a place in the last 16 from Group D as the inaugural Tiger National Futsal Championship entered the knockout phase at the Beeline Arena late on Wednesday.

With their qualification chances hanging in balance, the two teams were at each other’s throats every minute of the way in this must win game before the thrilling verdict went in favour of Khmer Heart, who had earlier been beaten out of sight by Family FC 7-0.

Khmer Super Red topped the four-team group after winning all the three matches.

There were no matches yesterday and action in the round of 16 starts today with the semi-finals and grand final, to be telecast live by local channel MyTV from 4:30pm onwards on Saturday.

“It has been hectic three days of intense futsal. We could see so much of enthusiasm and energy among the teams and the public response has also been good. We are looking forward to an exciting second stage of the competition,” Beeline Arena general manager Charles Julliard told the Post.
