Cambodia ride the highs and lows in Mexico City

Cambodia endured a rollercoaster of emotions at the 2012 Homeless World Cup in Mexico City on Wednesday.

A resounding 5-2 win in their early kick-off against the USA was proclaimed by head coach Jimmy Campbell as “the best performance ever of any Cambodian team” from four past appearances.

However, the result was undone by an 8-4 loss to Peru later in the day.

Group A games against Denmark late last night and the Philippines at 12:50am tonight will determine which section Cambodia will be placed in for tomorrow’s start of the two-day Trophy Stage.
