Ghana too good for Cambodia

GHANA proved too strong and wily for Cambodia in a runaway 9-2 victory as the Paris 2011 Homeless Football World Cup entered the secondary stage at the Champs de Mars yesterday. Exquisite passing and clinical finishing saw the Ghanians take a firm hold of the contest in this lower half of the draw.

Cambodia, who finished fifth out of six teams in the group stage with a solitary win against Sweden, meet Palestine next. The Philippines and Indonesia kept Asian hopes alive in the premier section. Indonesia shrugged off a determined Denmark 7-4, while the Phillipines beat Croatia 8-5.

Title holders Brazil were ominously impressive in their 11-3 rout of tournament favourites Portugal. In the16-team Women’s World Cup being staged concurrently, champions Brazil thumped the United States 14-0 to make rapid strides towards the final. Mexico, touted as Brazil’s biggest threat, came out of the group leaders clash against Kenya 6-3.
