Sports for All wraps up 2011 as Dangkor and Akira play grand final

The 2011 Sport for All football championship reaches its exciting conclusion as the year does the same, with Khan Dangkor FC facing Akira FC in tomorrow afternoon’s final at Olympic Stadium.

Competition debutants Dangkor’s confidence was fluctuating ahead of the 3:30pm kickoff on New Year’s Eve.

“We have beaten Akira FC in a friendly match. However, we are a little concerned about Akira having had a strong campaign up to the final,” said Dangkor president Hem Dareth, who still gave his side 100 per cent chance of success while his manager, Sam Savuth, was only 90 per cent certain. Penh Narin, manager of Akira, noted that his side had also won against Dangkor in a friendly match.

“But this final is different to a friendly,” he added. The third-place playoff between losing semifinalists Preah Khan Reach Veterans and ACLEDA Bank FC will be played earlier from 2pm tomorrow.
