The Cambodian national football team are playing a friendly match against Mongolia at Olympic Stadium tonight. This clash gives Cambodia a chance to raise confidence ahead of their away game in Hong Kong on the 19th as part of the World Cup Qualifiers.
In odd fashion, finding the information about the friendly is difficult. Most sporting websites, the official website of the Cambodian national team – and even Google – seem to have omitted this fixture.
But to catch you up: after a 14-0 thrashing in Iran, and a 0-4 loss to Iraq on home territory, the Kingdom’s national team will have plentiful opportunity to restore optimism at the Mongolian friendly. Mongolia currently rank as 186th in the FIFA world rankings, 16 spaces behind Cambodia. Expect an electric atmosphere full of thundersticks and the friendliest “ultra” chants.
