Six appeal Brunei put to sword by Warriors

Cambodia scored a confidence-boosting 6-1 win over visiting Brunei in an international friendly at the floodlit Olympic Stadium last night ahead of a tough fortnight during which the side will face Afghanistan in Tehran and then host Japan in the World Cup qualifiers.

While the home side treated another big turnout of fans to an evening of great entertainment, coach Lee Tae Hoon was guarded against reading too much into a scoreline that amply illustrated Cambodia’s overall superiority over their regional rivals.

The sides Cambodia are to tackle, Afghanistan, on November 12 in Tehran, and Japan at home on November 17, have already shown how dangerous they can be.

Prak Monyudom equalised for Cambodia on 20 minutes after Abd Azizi Bin Ali Rahman put Brunei ahead on the 12th minute. Va Quentin put the Warriors 2-1 up on the half-hour. Monyudom then scored his second before the break.

Keo Sokpheng bagged a second-half brace (54 and 62) and Lee Tae Hoon brought a few fringe players off the bench to give them some game time. Soeuy Visal twisted the knife with Cambodia’s sixth in stoppage time to seal a comprehensive victory.
