U23 squad face tune ups before SEA Games

The Cambodian U23 squad have cued up four international friendlies in the run up to their 27th SEA Games opener in Yangon on December 7.

This Sunday, they will face Vietnamese second division club Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh at Olympic Stadium from 3:30pm, before playing a match against the Guam national team in the late afternoon on Tuesday.

The Cambodians will then head to Singapore for two games, on November 21 and 24, against the U23 national side there.

FSV Frankfurt striker Chhunly Pagenburg, who at 27 is too old to feature at the SEA Games, has been admitted into the Cambodian squad for their home fixtures.

Meanwhile, Phnom Penh Crown flew a team out to Nanning, China, yesterday ahead of a 3pm clash today with Guangxi Nanning Runhua in the Huanglongju Real Estate Cup.

The tournament will also include clubs from Vietnam, Laos and South Korea.
