Cambodian All Stars pip Burriram on penalties

The Cambodian All Stars pulled off a 4-3 win on penalties over Burriram United in a charity friendly before a frenzied crowd of 50,000 at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

The lively encounter ended 2-2 after regulation time and the Thai giants were the first to lose their composure in the ensuing penalties. As the All Stars gained the upper hand, there were wild celebrations in the stands.

The victory was doubly sweet for coach Prak Sovanara who had guided his side to a victory last week over another Thai team, SCG Muangthong United.

This was Burriram’s first stop on a long pre-season tour of the region. Apart from sweeping to their second successive Thai league title last year, Burriram dominated the domestic scene with four other titles.

The proceeds from the game are to be donated to the Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospitals.
