Brief: Cambodia in hard group

The draw for the football group matches in the Southeast Asia Games in Laos next month has placed Cambodia in the very strong Group A. Cambodia will open their campaign against eight-time gold medallists Thailand on December 4 at 3pm at the Chao-Anu-Vong Stadium in central Vientiane. Their games come thick and fast, and two days later they meet Timor Leste at 5:45pm at the brand-new national stadium, some 20 kilometres outside of the city. On December 8 they are back at the Chao-Anu-Vong venue to meet Malaysia at 5:45pm, and then complete their group matches with another tough task against Vietnam on December 11 at 3pm at the same ground. Scott O’Donell and his U23 squad are off to Vietnam again today for another 10 days of intensive preparation at the Thanh Long facility just outside Ho Chi Minh City.
