Cambodia play with pride at Homeless World Cup

Cambodia won their quarter-final but lost their semi-final at the Cup of Tolerance at the 2013 Homeless World Cup in Poznan, Poland, on Saturday.

According to coach Jimmy Campbell, a 6-5 victory over an experienced Canadian side in the morning set up a semis clash with Norway, but the Cambodians were not clinical enough in their scoring opportunities to end the match 5-3 down.

Cambodia were to play Wales in the 3rd/4th play-off yesterday. The Cup of Tolerance is the fifth of six tiers of finals competitions, which are played on the last two days of the week-long event.

The team will return home today with coach Campbell saying they can be proud of their achievements.

“They work hard as a team and gave everything that was expected of them. They did their country proud,” he told the Post.
