Scrimmage becomes scrum, then stabbing

A 19-year-old just looking for a friendly match got in over his head after insulting a group of football-playing thugs.

The teen saw a group of guys playing football in Kampong Chhnang‘s Teuk Phos district on Monday and asked if he could play.

The group turned him down, and the rejected teen angrily insulted the bunch. The group responded with kicks and blows, not to the ball but to the teen’s head, and then one of the bunch stabbed the boy in the back before the gang all ran off. DEUM AMPIL
