MCL ties return, U22s to play Filipino friendly

Phnom Penh Crown will clash with the Ministry of National Defence today at 2:30pm in the remaining fixture from the first half of the 2012 Metfone C-League season.

The game at Olympic Stadium will be followed by a 4:30pm kickoff between Build Bright United and Kirivong Sok Sen Chey, which signifies the start of the 10th round after the mid-season break.

Ex-Army goalkeeper Samreth Seiha has just signed for reigning league champions Crown after a two-year hiatus from the sport.

Seiha may not be eligible for today’s game against his former employers. Meanwhile, the Football Federation of Cambodia have announced a friendly fixture for their U22 national squad on June 13 against a visiting U22 national team from the Philippines.

Both nations are preparing for qualifiers of the 2014 AFC U22 Asian Cup later this month.

Cambodia are bracketed in Group F held in Vientiane, while the Philippines will play in Group G in Yangon.
