Kingdom plans to tame Singapore's Lions

The Cambodian national squad, who have been training in Kuala Lumpur for the past week, will play a friendly match against Courts Young Lions tomorrow evening at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore.

Head coach Hok Sochetra said the training was going “great” for them. “Players have a lot of time to get to know each other, both in living and playing together,” he said, while noting that some were not familiar with Malaysian food.

The 39-year-old former Cambodia national team star also revelaed that defender Khek Khemarin may be ruled out for one to two weeks due to an ankle injury during training, while midfielder Chhun Sothearath and midfieder Prak Mony Udom have now recovered from their minor health issues.

Cambodia will play a friendly against the Malaysian national team next Tuesday at the Shah Alam Stadium in Kuala Lumpur before heading to Myanmar for the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup qualification tournament from October 5-13.
