U21s head to Brunei for regional battles

The Cambodian U21 squad, lead by national team head coach Lee Tae Hoon of South Korea, departed Phnom Penh International Airport yesterday morning bound for Brunei and the 2014 Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy.

The tournament, contested by male youth teams from all 10 ASEAN nations and East Timor and named after the Sultan of Brunei, will be held at venues in the Brunei capital of Bandar Seri Bagawan from August 8 to 23.

Cambodia have been bracketed in Group B along with hosts Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Group A features Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, East Timor and the Philippines.

Cambodia will get their campaign underway on Saturday night at the 30,000-seater Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium against Brunei, who won the most recent edition in 2012.
