It was another tough day at the office for the Cambodian Homeless World Cup team as they slumped to two defeats against European opposition on Monday in Mexico City.
Cambodia head coach Jimmy Campbell reported that his side went down 10-1 to a “vastly experienced” Norwegian team in their early fixture.
“The players’ commitment was never in doubt and they left the pitch with their heads high,” said Campbell.
“In the second game of the day, Ireland raced into an early 3-0 lead but the Cambodian team fought hard to get themselves back in the game.
The eventual score was 9-4 in favour of the Irish team but it could have been much closer had Cambodia converted three penalties and another couple of good chances.”
After just one win from five games in the group stage, Cambodia now head into the secondary stage where they will face other nations of a similar standard.
