Do or die for Cambodia U23 team at SEA Games

The Cambodian U23 squad, currently bottom of Group B at the SEA Games in Myanmar, faces a must-win match tonight against East Timor from 7:15pm at Yangon’s Thuwunna YTC Stadium.

Having lost their two opening games to Myanmar and Indonesia, conceding four goals whilst failing to find the net at the other end, the Cambodians will be eager for a positive result tonight before a crunch tie against Thailand next Monday.

East Timor, who hammered Cambodia 5-1 in last year’s Suzuki Cup qualifiers at the exact same venue, are also looking to kick-start their campaign after two 3-1 defeats to Thailand and Myanmar. Meanwhile in Group A fixtures on Tuesday, reigning champions Malaysia beat Brunei 2-0 while Singapore edged Vietnam 1-0.
