Thailand v Cambodia


Thailand play the second match in the Lao-based SEA Games today after an opening 1-1 draw against Vietnam – which has been described in the media as a result of considerable violence by the Vietnamese players, a dubious last-minute penalty and the presence of thousands of Vietnamese supporters who had ‘swarmed’ across the border. Today’s game (which may in fact already be under way, now I come to think of it) is against Cambodia and is anticipated to be something of a shooting-fish-in-a-barrel event as Cambodian football is very poor. Really, very, very desperate, especially at u-23 level.
