Cambodia capped off their 2013 Homeless World Cup campaign in the Polish city of Poznan with a resounding 7-3 victory over Wales on Sunday to finish third in the Cup of Tolerance, effectively ranking them 35th out of 46 competing nations.

According to team coach Jimmy Campbell, the side were on the offensive from the first whistle and managed to press their opponents at every opportunity.

A hat-tick for Nuth Daneth and two a piece for Chey Makara and Huon Neasa did the damage for Cambodia.

In the Homeless World Cup grand final, 2010 winners Brazil condemned Mexico to their third successive runners-up spot via a sudden death penalty shoot-out.

However, Mexico’s women’s team had already granted them a piece of silverware with a 3-1 win over Chile.
