Crown boys look for lift in ASEAN tournament

Phnom Penh Crown Academy clash with fellow Group A tailenders NFA Singapore in their FAM-Frenz U15 ASEAN Champions Trophy match at 6:30pm Cambodian time at the Jalan Besar Stadium tomorrow, with both sides in search of their first win in the inaugural regional competition. The Cambodians can take heart in the fact that they have already tasted success in the Lion City this year, winning the 2013 Singapore Cricket Club International Soccer Sixes tournament for youth teams back in May.

Crown and NFA are level pegging on one point each after five games, with both having netted three goals but Singapore having conceded six goals less.
