Khmer Utd join KMH in semi-finals

Khmer United snatched the second semi-final spot in Group A after outplaying European All Stars 4-1 on the back of Raphael Obeng’s second half hat-trick in the ISI Palm KMH Super Cup at the KMH Stadium in Chaom Chao near Phnom Penh International Airport on Wednesday night.

Following Japanese All Stars’ exit on Tuesday, Khmer United found themselves in a must-win situation but after a hard fought first half during which the Europeans put up a stubborn performance, the local community players upped the ante in the second session to eventually win by a comfortable margin.

United took the lead through Vy Youseah after seven minutes but the first half was an end to end fight with several open chances for both sides.

Obeng then doubled the lead 25 minutes after the restart and although Barreras brought the Europeans back into the game with a 78th minute goal, two more goals in two minutes from Obeng left the winless Europeans high and dry.

The result meant that United finished second behind unbeaten KMH Stars in Group A with the Japanese and Europeans finishing third and fourth.
