National team face Crown in friendly

The Cambodian national team play reigning Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown today at 3:30pm at Olympic Stadium.

The friendly fixture is part of series of practice matches against all the top flight local teams to help new coach Lee Tae-Hoon of South Korea identify his best squad for the two upcoming AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers against Macau to be held home and away on February 9 and 16.

The national team failed to progress to the knockout stage of the ongoing 2010 Suzuki Cup, missing out on goal difference in the qualifying tournament held in Vientiane last October. They had previously qualified for the tournament in 2008, when the qualifiers were held at Olympic stadium.

Today, the squad will be up against familiar national team regulars such as Khim Borey, Kouch Sokumpheak, Tieng Tiny, San Narith and Sun Sopanha.

Recently appointed Crown coach Bojan Hodak of Croatia and his squad are currently preparing for the 2011 Samdech Hun Sen Cup competition which will begin in early January. The two-time Cup  champions will spend the Christmas period in Vietnam training and playing two friendlies against local sides before returning home on December 30.
