In Brief: U23 team collect prize

The Cambodian U23 National team collected US$10,000 Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium, a result of the monies promised for positive results from the 2009 SEA Games in Vientiane. Cambodia won just one of their four group games, scoring five goals in total. Half of the money came from Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema, while the remaining $5,000 was given by local phone company Metfone, which earlier in the year had granted $1.5 million towards the construction of a national football centre near Takeo.
