It's all fun and games until someone is sent to the hospital. And so it was at an arguably not-so-friendly football game between chums in Poipet on Sunday.
Police said one of the players accidentally kicked the foot of another, something that’s known to happen in a game whose object is to steal a ball from the opposition with one’s foot.
But this basic truth was lost on the offended party, who, despite an apology, proceeded to beat his opponent senseless. Police arrived only too late, but the hospitalised victim was able to offer a description of his attacker. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
