Cambodian U16 squad proudly thump Brunei

The Cambodian national U16 team emphatically answered the call from coach Sam Schweingruber to display national pride yesterday with an 8-0 demolition of Brunei in their AFF U16 Championship Group A clash in Myanmar.

The Kingdom’s lads were cruising at 4-0 by the half-time break and didn’t show any mercy to their regional rivals in the second session, smashing in goals at regular intervals throughout the game played at Naypyidaw’s Zabuthiri Stadium.

It was the biggest winning margin of the competition so far and gave Cambodia some welcome respite after suffering a 4-0 reversal to Australia in the opener on Tuesday.
