| PHNOM PENH (26 Sept 2008) – The Cambodian national team are currently in South Korea as they gear up to prepare a strong team for the AFF Suzuki Cup 2008 qualifiers next month.
The team has been in training and playing several friendly matches in South Korea since early this month and has been making significant progress.
“We have played a total of eight matches against mostly university teams. It is more of training games and looking at the different possibilities in terms of combination and tactical play,” said head coach Prak Sovannara.
“We win some matches and we lose some but on the whole, the team has been showing a lot of improvement and I’m quite positive that they will be able to perform well for the qualifiers.”
As hosts, Cambodia will be eyeing one of only two available slots for the tournament proper which will be held in December.
But their road will not be made any easier as they will be up against Brunei, the Philippines, Laos and Timor Leste for the qualifiers slated for 17-25 Oct, 2008.
