Khmer Europe spanked 5-1 by Crown in friendly

Khmer Europe suffered a third and final defeat of their tour of Southeast Asia yesterday with reigning Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown inflicting a 5-1 rout at Olympic Stadium.

The squad comprised of Cambodians based abroad had originally planned to show their might against the full national team but fell to strikes from such players in the rearranged fixture.

All six goals came in the first half, with Sos Souhana netting a hat-trick to go with Khim Borey and Sok Pheng goals.

Bin Thierry scored in stoppage time for the tourists.
