Kingdom kicks off AFF U16 campaign

Cambodia begin their Asian Football Federation’s U16 Youth Championships campaign today against the Philippines at Olympic Stadium at 6.30pm.

The first match of the day features Singapore and Myanmar.

Originally allotted to Indonesia, the AFF had to shift the venue to Cambodia after the rift between the regional giants and world governing body FIFA eventually led to Indonesia’s ban from all competitions in May this year.

In the Group A opener at Olympic Stadium yesterday, Laos pulled off a merited 1-0 win over Thailand.

Cambodia are placed with Australia, Myanmar, the Philippines and Singapore in Group B.

Group A is made up of Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Timor Leste, Brunei and Laos.

The top two teams from each group will make the semifinals on August 7, with the final at Olympic Stadium on August 9.

Cambodia’s Group B schedule
July 31: Australia, Olympic Stadium, 6.30pm
August 3: Singapore, Olympic Stadium, 6.30pm
August 5: Myanmar, Olympic Stadium, 6.30pm
