Malaysia edge Cambodia in storm-hit Brunei battle

The Cambodian U21 team suffered the first loss of their 2014 Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy campaign in Brunei on Wednesday night, going down 1-0 to Malaysia in a rain-soaked match at the Track & Field Sports Complex in Bandar Seri Begawan.

A first-half downpour held up play for 16 minutes, with neither side able to break the deadlock before the interval. In the 66th minute, defender Mohamad Asri Mardzuki capitalised on some slack Cambodian defending from a corner kick to blast a strike through a sea of players and score the game’s only goal.

With the win, Malaysia shot to the top of the Group B table on seven points, one ahead of Vietnam, hosts Brunei and Cambodia, who now face Indonesia from 3pm Cambodian time tomorrow at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium.
