National team trio in motorbike accident

The Cambodian national team suffered a significant blow on Sunday night ahead of this Saturday’s start of the 2011 Mekong BIDC Cup when three players were involved in a motorbike accident near the National Training Centre in Cheng Meng. Striker Sophal Udom severely injured his left heel, while driver Sok Pheng sustained minor injuries and Samuth Dalin escaped unhurt after a female motorbike driver crashed head-on into them after swerving to avoid another vehicle. Sophal Udom has been ruled out of the 8-day tournament to be held at Olympic Stadium while Sok Pheng is likely to recover in time, national team manager Van Ly confirmed yesterday. The woman involved in the accident died later from her injuries, according to the manager.
