Laos beat Cambodia in warm-up game

The Japan-bound Cambodian National football team went down 1-2 to Laos in an international Friendly at Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium on Saturday.

Cambodia’s Tierry Chantha Bin equalised just before half time Lao striker Sitthideth Khantavong’s 11th minute goal, but the crafty front liner was back to nail the go ahead goal three minutes into the second session.

The Cambo-dian team spent a few days in Thailand as part of its final preparations before flying to Tokyo for a Group E clash against Japan on September 3 at the Saitama Stadium in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers.
