Kirivong storm to perfect start

AFTER a thrilling 4-2 comeback win in the Cambodian Premier League against favoured opponents Khemara Keila last Saturday, Kirivong Sok Sen Chey, from Takeo province, grabbed three more points from their second match, beating Post Tel Club 3-0 Wednesday.

Abosede Olabode Paule exposed some poor Post Tel defending to open the scoring for Kirivong after 17 minutes. Then, just a minute later, Julius Chukwumeka took his chance to put Kirivong two goals ahead before the break.

With Post Tel Club not creating chances for themselves and being reduced to ten men after Loch Sophea received a second yellow, Kirivong put the game to bed with a third goal in the 68th minute from yet another African player, Samuel Oseika.

Korean cable company KTC donated US$105,600 to the Football Federation of Cambodia (FFC) Wednesday as part of their ongoing contribution to the development of Cambodian national football.

The money was officially handed over during a ceremony held at the National Football Centre on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, presided over by KTC chairman Kim Myung Il and FFC president Lt Gen Sao Sokha.

According to FFC deputy General Secretary and Technical Director May Tola, KTC Co Ltd has donated approximately $100,000 each year to the Cambodian National Team since 2007.

The FFC have said that the donation will go towards preparations for the SEA Games held in Laos in December.
