Preah Khan Reach beat national team in friendly

Reigning Hun Sen Cup champions Preah Khan Reach defeated the Cambodian national team 2-1 at Olympic Stadium yesterday in the fifth of a series of friendly fixtures arranged with local clubs to help the senior squad prepare for the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup qualifiers in Myanmar in October.

The result was the second loss for the national side after three wins in their first three ties. In yesterday’s game, Sos Souhana struck in the first minute before PKR midfielder Prak Mony Udom brought things back level 10 minutes later.

A tighter second half saw Joseph Olatubosun snatch the winner on 73 minutes.

Matches at Olympic Stadium against Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown and current leaders Naga Corp are scheduled for Saturday and next Tuesday respectively, before the national team take on their Filipino counterparts on September 5 and a team comprised of Cambodians living abroad on September 13.
