Crown set for Yunnan challenge next week

Reigning Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown will head to China next Wednesday to participate in the 2014 Yunnan-ASEAN International Tournament, which takes place from December 5-10.

Of the eight invited teams entering the tournament, six are visiting regional sides – Muang Thong United (Thailand), Hanoi T&T (Vietnam), Yadanarbon (Myanmar), Sabah FA (Malaysia), the Laos national team and Crown – while two will be from Yunnan province in southwest China.

“This is a great opportunity to kick-start our preparation for the forthcoming 2015 season, and the high standard of the teams invited to Yunnan will give this tournament a serious competitive edge,” Crown head coach Sam Schweingruber told the Post.

“We will take a squad of 18 players next week and though we have only just returned to serious pre-season training, we are determined to take full advantage of this opportunity.” Last November, Crown featured at the Nanning ASEAN International Invitation Tournament, finishing third.
