Cambodia overturned by Singapore U23 side

The Cambodian U23 squad saw their 1-0 victory over their Singaporean counterparts on Friday reversed in the second friendly at the Hougang Stadium in Singapore on Sunday.

The Kingdom welcomed back French-born midfielder Bin Chantha Thierry, who’d made a dramatic U-turn on his decision two weeks ago to retire from international football, but saw Singapore’s Shafiq Ghani grab the decisive goal in the 75th minute.

The sides have been bracketed in separate groups for the 27th SEA Games competition, which kicks off in Myanmar in a fortnight.
