Cambodia finish strong against Finland

Cambodia’s 2012 Homeless World Cup team got back to their winning ways on Tuesday with an 8-5 win over Finland in their secondary-stage Group F match.

“It was an exciting game, with chances coming thick and fast. Cambodia controlled most of the play and, as the game neared its end, they stepped up to score a couple of vital goals,” head coach Jimmy Campbell told the Post by email from Mexico City.

“The players and the staff are all enjoying this wonderful experience and Mexico has done a magnificent job as host.”

Cambodia, who currently sit top of their group, faced Peru at 3:10 Cambodian time this morning and take on Denmark at 1:10am tonight.
