A squad of 22 players has been selected to participate in the AFC Festival of Football U14 tournament in Kinabalu, Malaysia, which kicked off yesterday.
The Cambodian boys will head off on Sunday to play in their games and will return after its conclusion on June 3.
Led by Phnom Penh Crown Academy coach Bouy Dary with assistants Ouk Mich, the goalkeeping coach from Preah Khan Reach, and Ministry of National Defence assistant coach Long Rithea, the team comprises 17 Crown members, three from PKR, one from MND and one from Prek Pra Keila.
Malaysia is staging the Southeast Asia Region matches, featuring 12 nations including Australia, while four other locations across the continent host regional events.
“The results are not important. What is important is that the boys get to know each other,” said Cambodia coach Bouy Dary.
