National team off to Takeo

The Football Federation of Cambodia released a list of names of 30 players for the national team on Tuesday as selected by South Korean head coach Lee Tae Hoon.

The squad was to travel to the National Football Centre in Tonle Bati district, Take province, for training ahead of their participation in the upcoming 2014 Suzuki Cup qualification tournament in Vientiane.

Cambodia are chasing their first place in the group stage since 2008, and will kick off their campaign on October 12 against hosts Laos at the New Laos National Stadium.

They will then face over the following week East Timor, Myanmar and Brunei for one of the two spots up for grabs in the next phase, which will be co-hosted by Vietnam and Singapore from November 22 to December 20.

Lee’s staff members for the Takeo training include team manager Chhang Piseth, assistant coaches Meas Channa, Um Savong and Ung Kanyanith, goalkeeper coach Prak Vanny, doctor Hai Sakary and interpreter Lem Vanny.
