BIDC give money to U21 squad for wins in Brunei

The Bank for Investment and Development of Cambodia (BIDC) on Friday morning donated US$6,000 to the Cambodian U21 squad, who returned home the day before from their 2014 Hassanal Bolkiah trophy campaign in Brunei.

The team won three of their Group B matches against hosts Brunei, Singapore and Indonesia, but losses to Malaysia and Vietnam saw them finish fourth in the table and fail to advance to the semi-finals.

Vietnam were beaten 4-3 by first-time winners Myanmar in the grand final on Saturday at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Bandar Seri Bagawan.
